atheists in love

You will love this logical progression.

1) atheist do better at online dating according to study
2) therefore, atheists suck at sex.

Yep, folks, that's what some benighted bloke seems to think at the Telegraph.

So, of course, there is nothing else going on here. Atheists can't possibly be interested in getting to know people before fucking them. They can't possibly find that it's hard to meet other atheists or generally skeptical people at bars. They can't actually just be slightly less inclined to one night stands. And heaven forbid, they might actually be better at sex, just have less of it. No, success at online dating = you suck at sex.

Bigotry in motion.

Considering how repressed most religious people are, I'd actually be inclined to think that atheists were better and more inventive at sex. That, at least, has some basis in reality. George Pitcher's bigotted comment, doesn't even have that.
