Another religion is good for you argument

So biased... Show me outcomes. Have these lower income kids that don't go to church done worse than lower income kids that went to church? Maybe they have, maybe they haven't but don't be drawing conclusions from only one set of data points. Half-assed reporting.

The article is self-refuting

Quote:These scholars and many members of the clergy worry that a growing religious attendance gap between rich and poor children is contributing to class inequality by stripping poor kids of a valuable source of mentorship.

That says nothing about the truth of the dogma; it is only saying that kids need adult mentors which I doubt many would disagree with. The question then is what is the best way to provide that? Adults pushing unsubstantiated claims would not rank high on my list.

Quote:Separation from houses of worship is just one of many ways that lower-income children live in a less supported world than wealthier kids. Poor kids are now less likely than wealthy children to be part of sports teams...

Right, socialization with peers is another factor. That doesn't require that woo be a part of it.

Atheism: it's not just for communists any more!
