Nonbelievers Are Better Than Believers
My apologies to my fellow atheists on this; I am not being narcissistic.
I just read BV post about being threatened and it got me thinking. Here in America our jails are overflowing with religious NOT atheists or agnostics. A sunday school teacher was just arrested for raping and murdering an eight year old little girl. A religious cult leader savagely starved and beat a toddler to death because the 20 month old baby "refused" (more likely was unable) to say "Amen" before eating. Then stuffed the baby in a suitcase and carried the body around for months. Girls as young as 14 IN AMERICA are forced to marry men in their 50s. Then you have female circumcision, sewing woman shut, etc, etc, etc.
I think that the religious are more likely to indulge their "demons" because they believe their "father" will forgive them. All they have to do is say their sorry. They think they have the right to abuse, manipulate, and take what ever they want because they think they are the chosen people and they have one HELL of a superiority complex.
Atheists and agnostics on the other hand have a much more solid moral foundation. Our desire to give back to society and leave things just a little better drives us to be the best we can be. I honestly can say that when I look at religion's morality I am truely ashamed for mankind. Im sure many others are too. I also think that being able to free the shakles of religion frees us of the demons that seem to plague the theists. (That and we can identify mental illness for what it is and not for demonic possession!)
