Unbelievable? 22 Aug 2009 - Does religion make people unhappy?

Many "New Atheists" have written books claiming that Christianity is bad for people.  

Barry Duke is editor of "The Freethinker" - a longstanding humanist magazine and website that seeks to show why religion is bad for the world.  Barry claims that most religious people are weighed down by guilt and that atheism sets people free.

Tom Price is an apologist with Damaris and the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics.  He says that his search for happiness was fulfilled when he found Christ as an adult.
