You didn't bother to address my question if they were less flawed than militant Islamic Fundamendalists who think it's ok to murder for their ideology. Are the religious Catholic priests who molested children less flawed then the non-religious law abiding?
With all the scandals throughout the years involving the clergy and well-known TV preachers you can't seriously be claiming that believing in a God or having "religion" somehow makes you morally superiour to an atheist or agnostic. If so, I find that outrageous and offensive.
Famous Atheists or Agnostics:
There's quite a few who actually WERE in charge when our country was younger. Are we any the worse for it?
I do not understand why some "religious" people are so intolerant of those who choose not to believe in their "God". If that is what gets them through the day, fine. Why must they assign everyone else to Hell? Why do they feel they must "save" or "perfect" the non-believer? To me, that is an insult. Isn't America supposed to be about the freedom of choice?
Anyway, this is way off the original topic.
