Thank god for corporate bonuses

Oh dear, more holy rollers denouncing the evil atheist through letters to the editor.

Oh dear, more holy rollers denouncing the evil atheist through letters to the editor.

Religion or not, you either have empathy for your fellow man or not. There is plenty of evidence on both sides to show examples of cruelty.

I happen to be a non-believer and like to think I care about the world and am a totally moral person. Common sense dictates that a society will quickly fall into anarchy if it has no moral compass.

It does not need religion to make a person moral and caring. It needs society to care about the greater good rather than to put themselves first.

The U.S. has lots of religious fundamentalists, but I certainly don’t see that country as a good example. If you really want to point fingers, the problem lies with corporate greed and the desire for power and control

I am sure lots of CEOs go to church on Sunday and thank God for their $5 million bonuses.
