Critiquing the Dislike of Atheists versus Cultists

The research paper Whom Do People Dislike More: Atheists or Cultists?, published in volume 8 of the 2012 edition of The Interdisciplinary Journal of Research on Religion, asks whether atheists or cultists are viewed with more prejudice by the general public and if personal characteristics affect these prejudices. This collaborated effort was authored by Ryan T. Cragun of the University of Tampa, Patrick Henry of Eckerd College, Casey P. Homan of the University of California, and Joseph Hammer of Iowa State University (Cragun, Henry, Homan, and Hammer). The research was conducted and presented in an informative and non-biased manner.
