Does the world think religion is necessary for morality?
A recent piece by The Atlantic highlighted a study from the Pew Research Center that explored how the world responds to the question "Is it necessary to believe in God in order to be a moral person?"
The survey, which involved 40,000 people in 40 countries between 2011 and 2013, revealed interesting associations and subtleties, including how a nation's wealth affects attitudes toward morality.
"... The United States continued its tradition of defying religious patterns in the rest of the West and developed world: Compared to people in other countries with a similar per-capita GDP, U.S. respondents were much more likely to say that belief in God is necessary to be a good person," Emma Green wrote for The Atlantic.
