IF THEY WERE WELL-ADJUSTED THEY WOULDN'T HATE GOD TO BEGIN WITH:

'Believers are happier than atheists' (Jonathan Petre, 18/03/2008, Daily Telegraph)

People who believe in God are happier than agnostics or atheists, researchers claimed yesterday.

A report found that religious people were better able to cope with disappointments such as unemployment or divorce than non-believers.

Moreover, they become even happier the more they pray and go to church, claims the study by Prof Andrew Clark and Dr Orsolya Lelkes.
