Trust in me...

Fox news in America ran this slimy piece the other day in which Catholic priest Jonathan Morris said that Atheists are "hard to trust" because they don't believe in "eternal consequences" for their actions; the implication was that an Atheist could not be President (I think he'll find that there have been many Atheist Presidents already!).

In other words he's saying that the main reason religious people behave themselves is because they fear hell-fire or some such "after-death" punishment. Unfortunately we all know that can't be true because millions of religious people don't actually behave themselves at all; being a Catholic in the era of Catholic child abuse scandals you would have thought he would have known that all too well?
