But an atheist can act just as ethically
as a Christian, maybe even more so.
We deal in the truth.
Look at all those priests
who raped small boys.
I'm not saying Christianity
makes them do that,
but it certainly doesn't seem to stop them.
There is no ethical standard without the absolute of God.
Everything else slides without it.
That is just not true.
We can choose to live by the Golden Rule.
It honors men and women more if they choose to do right.
And not worry about some Santa Claus-like figure who punishes and rewards based on us doing right.
