Religion Doesn’t Make You a Better Person

David Hayward lays to waste the stereotype that you have to believe in God to be good:

I know some nice atheists. I know some not so nice atheists. I know some nice Christians. I know some not so nice Christians. But, in my opinion and experience, the worst not so nice people are the Christian ones because they use their religion to veil and even justify their not so niceness.

There’s nothing uglier than that.

It’s a simple truth: Religion doesn’t make you a better person. But it often makes you *think* you’re a better person. (For what it’s worth, atheism doesn’t automatically make you smarter than anyone else, either, only more honest in one aspect of your life.)
