Children from religious families are less kind and more punitive than those from non-religious households, according to a new study. Academics from seven universities across the world studied Christian, Muslim and non-religious children to test the relationship between religion and morality. The report was a welcome antidote to the presumption that religion is a prerequisite of morality, said Keith Porteous Wood of the UK National Secular Society.
