      The opposite is in fact true:
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Importance_of_religion_by_country

      Where is religion "most important" to people? In some of the most awful places to live on earth, war-torn countries where human rights are not even a blip on the radar.

      Meanwhile, in Sweden where 83% say religion is not important to them, human rights are respected as well as anywhere on earth. Same with Denmark, Norway - there are plenty of examples of largely atheist societies that have not devolved into "other destructive types of cults".
