Yes indeedy. Who would skeptic rather have running his city, state or country? A peaceful atheist who follows the laws of the land, or someone like that maniac who went on a killing rampage for god? Who would make better moral decisions?
You are absolutely right. I would prefer the peaceful atheist.
But, is it really right of you guys to suggest that no atheist feels like Christians should die? People used to feed Christians to the lions in the coliseum just for entertainment.
You may find it offensive and say "I don't want to do that!" but it's offensive to me when you refer to all Christians as "whackos."
