A meta-analysis of 63 studies showed a significant negative association between intelligence and religiosity. The association was stronger for college students and the general population than for participants younger than college age; it was also stronger for religious beliefs than religious behavior. For college students and the general population, means of weighted and unweighted correlations between intelligence and the strength of religious beliefs ranged from −.20 to −.25 (mean r = −.24). Three possible interpretations were discussed. First, intelligent people are less likely to conform and, thus, are more likely to resist religious dogma. Second, intelligent people tend to adopt an analytic (as opposed to intuitive) thinking style, which has been shown to undermine religious beliefs. Third, several functions of religiosity, including compensatory control, self-regulation, self-enhancement, and secure attachment, are also conferred by intelligence. Intelligent people may therefore have less need for religious beliefs and practices.

One of these is not like the other.
The suspect’s mother, Mary Christian, told HuffPost early Saturday that she had no idea that her son might have been involved.

“It’s scary,” she said. “I can’t imagine he would do anything like this, unless he was on drugs or something. He’s been in prison, he’s always been spouting anti-establishment stuff but he’s a nice person I just can’t imagine.”
Christian has previously been convicted for felony robbery, kidnapping and possession of weapons. He will be arraigned in Multnomah County Court on Monday, where he may face additional charges, authorities say.

He’s also had ties to white supremacy in the area, according to authorities. On April 29, police confiscated a baseball bat from him at a “March for Free Speech” rally, after which he screamed racial epithets and gave the Nazi salute throughout the day, the Portland Mercury reports.

Police said they were familiar with him but they did not see him as a threat to public safety, adding that he suffered from mental illness. His mother told HuffPost Saturday that she didn’t believe he was mentally ill.

"Wassup?"







"I'll cup your balls like this when I stick it in her ass"






"Then I will violate both of you with this stick"





"Then I will smash your faces together until they have to identify your bodies with fingerprints"

Because women

According to Pope Francis's former competitor for the role of the Vatican's leader, Cardinal Raymond Burke, the rampant crisis of pedophile priests was brought on by women who "feminized" the church and discouraged "manly" men from participating in clerical life.
