Your opinions about non-believers

Do you honestly think atheists, agnostics, those who doubt the existence of the divine are bad people, with no morals?

  • I don't think that they are bad people. I went through a 10 year time period where I was a non-believer. I was raised Catholic and rejected the church and I am back now 10 years later. Sometimes a person can go through something that they cannot ever believe that God would put them through...that's what made me angry and a non-believer. I believe that you can be a non-believer and still have good morals...just because I exited the church for a decade, it didn't mean I had bad morals...

  • Not at all.
    I don't believe that religious affiliation has anything to do with how good/bad a person is.
    Likewise, I don't believe religious affiliation or belief has anything to do with whether or not someone will get into heaven, as I believe everyone does.

    Um, yeah. No. Most atheists are not "angry" at god. That's like being mad at Santa Claus or Harry Potter. There are many atheists who are more like me -- that have simply never been able to believe in any sort of supreme deity concept, not even as young children in religious households. And many more are unable to believe any longer due to discrepancies within the handbook or (cont)
