A psychopath is someone with an anti-social personality disorder characterized by violent, perverted or immmoral behavior often leading to criminality. Psychopaths have little or no concern for other people. Some psychopaths equate love with sexual arousal.[1]

Psychopathy is strongly correlated with crime, violence, and antisocial behavior.[2][3] See also: Irreligious prison population and Religion and crime reduction ]] A psychopath is someone with an anti-social personality disorder characterized by violent, perverted or immoral behavior often leading to criminality. Psychopaths have little or no concern for other people. Some psychopaths equate love with sexual arousal.[4]

When one turns to psychopathy, one tends to reject all emotions except for anger and hatred, the latter one feels toward mankind in general. All other emotions are faked to the benefit of the psychopath. This leads to the complete rejection of the social order, and the belief that the only crimes that are wrong are the ones one in which one gets caught; all morality is also abandoned.

Similarly, a survey of 312 college students examining the relationship between Religious/Spiritual Well-Being (RSWB) and ‘dark triad’ personality traits found that “RSWB was confirmed to be negatively correlated with these negative aspects of personality, in particular with subclinical psychopathy.”

...moral concern is associated with a spiritual worldview.[6]

According to the 2014 journal article Correlates of psychopathic personality traits in everyday life: results from a large community survey published in the journal Frontiers of Psychology lack of belief in God is positively associated with psychopathy.[7]
