Religion does more harm than good - poll

82% say faith causes tension in country where two thirds are not religious

More people in Britain think religion causes harm than believe it does good, according to a Guardian/ICM poll published today. It shows that an overwhelming majority see religion as a cause of division and tension - greatly outnumbering the smaller majority who also believe that it can be a force for good.

The poll also reveals that non-believers outnumber believers in Britain by almost two to one. It paints a picture of a sceptical nation with massive doubts about the effect religion has on society

The Guardian - Religion does more harm than good

While I am unsurprised by the report, I am surprised that The Guardian believes there can be such a thing as a ’smaller majority’. smiley icon: laugh
