Essay: Obese atheists heaven

From Conservapedia

Jump to: navigation, search
The Gallup Organization found that the non-religious had poorer dietary habits and exercise habits than the very religious.[1] Poor diet and lack of exercise has been tied to obesity.[2]

The Barna Group found concerning atheism and morality that those who hold to the worldviews of atheism or agnosticism in America were more likely, than theists in America, to look upon the following behaviors as morally acceptable: illegal drug use; excessive drinking; sexual relationships outside of marriage; abortion; cohabitating with someone of opposite sex outside of marriage; obscene language; gambling; pornography and obscene sexual behavior; and engaging in homosexuality/bisexuality.[3]

Of course, once sly marketers in Las Vegas found out that many atheists love gambling they promptly installed elaborate desert stations at their casino buffets. Casino buffets are often referred to as "Obese atheist heaven".
