Authors: Brewster, M. E., Hammer, J., Sawyer, J. S., Eklund, A., & Palamar, J.

Response Type:  6-point Likert-type; 1 = never, 6 = almost all of the time

Sample items

Immoral - I have been told that, as an atheist, I cannot be a moral person.

 

Bringing Shame - I have been told that I am selfish because I am atheist.

 

Asked to Pass - I have been asked to go along with religious traditions to avoid “stirring up trouble.”

 

Overt Maltreatment - People have denied me services because of my atheism.

 

Social Ostracism - Because of my atheism, others have avoided me.
