You suspected it, and now science proves it – atheists and liberals are the intolerant ones in the crowd.

While we have all seen that one person who always pushes their religion at the most inappropriate of times and making everyone uncomfortable, it turns out that those who lack any faith altogether are the really obnoxious people.

Despite their claims to be open-minded, science shows that when a liberal’s mouth is open, their mind is shut tight.  And they are apt to throw temper tantrums.

Scientific proof shows that liberals, atheists, and agnostics are really closed minded.

From the UK Independent:

“Religious people are more tolerant of different viewpoints than atheists, according to researchers at a Catholic university.

A study of 788 people in the UK, France and Spain concluded that atheists and agnostics think of themselves as more open-minded than those with faith, but are actually less tolerant to differing opinions and ideas.

Religious believers “seem to better perceive and integrate diverging perspectives”, according to psychology researchers at the private Catholic University of Louvain (UCL), Belgium’s largest French-speaking university.

Filip Uzarevic, who co-wrote the paper, said his message was that “closed-mindedness is not necessarily found only among the religious“.

He told Psypost: ““In our study, the relationship between religion and closed-mindedness depended on the specific aspect of closed-mindedness. 

“Somewhat surprisingly, when it came to subtly measured inclination to integrate views that were diverging and contrary to one’s own perspectives, it was the religious who showed more openness.”

Which is typical of the intellectual elites.  While Obama scolded those “who are desperately clinging to their Bibles” it’s really the liberals who refuse to even consider other views.

“The study claims that non-believers measured lower than religious people in “self-reported dogmatism”, but were higher in “subtly-measured intolerance“.

Dr. Uzarevic said: ““The idea started through noticing that, in public discourse, despite both the conservative/religious groups and liberal/secular groups showing strong animosity towards the opposite ideological side, somehow it was mostly the former who were often labeled as ‘closed-minded’. 

“Moreover, such view of the secular being more tolerant and open seemed to be dominant in the psychological literature.”

The findings also said that the strength of a person’s belief in either atheism or religion is directly correlated to how intolerant they are.”

This is indicative of how the political left and academia see themselves – as “tolerant free thinkers” who use their power to take away the free speech rights of conservatives.

It is amazing they had to do a study to figure out that liberals and secular people harbor extreme enmity towards conservatives.

All you had to do was watch the news following Trump’s election and witness the temper tantrums Hillary’s supporters threw to see just how tolerant the left really is.

From PsyPost:

“New research indicates that religious believers can be better at perceiving and integrating different perspectives than atheists in Western Europe.

“The main message of the study is that closed-mindedness is not necessarily found only among the religious,” the study’s corresponding author, Filip Uzarevic of the Catholic University of Louvain, told PsyPost.

Atheists tended to show greater intolerance of contradiction, meaning when they were presented with two seemingly contradictory statements they rated one as very true and the other as very false.

They also showed less propensity to be able to imagine arguments contrary to their own position and find them somewhat convincing.”

They need to do this study at CNN, the New York Times, and all the network news shows. But on second thought, they would probably just repeat themselves.
