If there is no God...

Another piece that claims that if there is no God, or we believe there is no God, then anything goes, this time from "Renew America". One thing that bothers me about these guys - do they think that because we don't believe in God we don't care about our kids? Or if you believe in God, then you are restrained from your natural tendency to screw everything up for your descendants?

Who knows, perhaps they are. Perhaps without the firm belief that they are the goods and chattel of a capricious and scary being of unlimited power who will beat the living crap out of them forever, they really would treat everything as garbage and other people as dirt. Let them continue in their religion, then, and let's all hope they don't ever get control of military weapons.
