Why do Christians...?

Why are Christians the only people on this planet with any morals? I got into a heavy argument with my father about my faith. My kids and I are not Christians, do not attend a 'church' and we worship at home. He is a very devout Catholic. He practically cried and begged me to take my kids to church, any Christ loving church, so that 'they will have morals and a sense of right and wrong'. My father is what I thought was educated, but now I am rethinking that. So? Only Christians have morals or is my 'educated' father ignorant?

Your father is not ignorant, but he is closed minded.  Religion does not give people morals.  That comes from within.

I think from his point of view, his religion helped shape his own morals and values so he thinks those without religion can not know wrong from right.

My religious beliefs helped shape some of my morals and values, but I do not think non Christians have no morals.

I don't need a book to tell me what's right and wrong. That's what my conscious is for.
