Sadly, bias is rampant on American college campuses—in spite of all the PR about embracing “diversity.” According to the Campus Caller a required psychology course at Ohio State University posted an online quiz that assumes Christians have lower IQs than atheists:
An online quiz from the school’s Psychology 1100 class, provided to Campus Reform via tip, asked students to pick which scenario they found most likely given that “Theo has an IQ of 100 and Aine has an IQ of 125.”

Here's a better exercise for the OSU phych faculty and staff: Try posting that quiz on the next voter ballot and see how many state taxpayers, regardless of religion, think the OSU psychology department deserves their continued funding.
