Anyone who has followed the ebb and flow of Atheism in America during the past decade or two is well aware of the presumption by many theists that Atheists are somehow lacking in morality. This shows up strongly in politics where to admit to being an Atheist is tantamount to suicide. In a recent Gallup poll Atheists scored dead last as someone that people would vote for. What bugs me, however, is that people so willingly concede morality to the theists in spite of the repeated examples that theism does not equate to moral strength. Especially in the realm of politics. But I digress. This is not an article on religion in the political world. It is on morality in the religious and my run-in with that morality.
