Atheists include some of the most moral and selfless people I have ever met

Rev Chris SchrinerUnitarian Minister the Rev. Chris Schriner (pictured) writes on InsideBay Area.com in response to the identification of Representative Pete Stark as a Unitarian: “I know lots of atheists. They include some of the most moral and selfless people I have ever met…I have discovered that there is much more that unites them than divides them.

What could unite theists and atheists? Values. The commitment to make the world a better place…Some theists are saints and some are scoundrels, and exactly the same is true of atheists. You can’t determine a person’s character by finding out his or her theory of reality….People don’t need to fear eternal torture in hell in order to be moral.”
