Atheistic Sweden and child pornography
Sweden is one of the most atheistic country in the world and the website adherents.com reported that in 2005 46 - 85% of Swedes were agnostics/atheists/non-believers in God. Sweden also has the 3rd highest rate of belief in evolution as far as Western World nations.
In the 1970s, child pornography was legal in Sweden. In 2010, Sweden banned the possession of child pornography, but viewing child pornography on the internet is still legal. In 2012, a Swedish political party (the Pirate Party of Sweden) proposed making the possession of child pornography legal again.
As a result of their past lax laws and permissive sexual morals, Sweden has had some scandals related to child pornography as can be seen below:
