Another poll finds people of faith are happier
VERBATIM: This one comes from the United Kingdom and it indicates that 76% of religious people there say they are happy and 73% describe their psychological well being as GOOD. Compare that to less than half of atheists who are happy and just 52% whose mental health is positive. The poll was released by the Institute for the Impact of Faith in Life, which notes — ironically — that many OTHER surveys show that more and Britons are quitting faith altogether.
