None of these examples are of a nature of "well, I heard that this person had a scam going".


Not even mentioning all of the Catholic scandals.

I notice your list is much shorter... not enough "atheist" "role models" to properly say "Oh, yeah, well YOU, TOO!"?

The person you listed for will not understand your point, which is why he listed who he did without addressing your post

A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side. Aristotle
Never discourage anyone...who continually makes progress, no matter how slow. Plato..

Lenin, Stalin and Pol Pot were dictators - the main thing that unified them were brutal regimes that cracked down on any dissent. Lenin was the least worst and Stalin and Pol Pot were more equal and they set themselves up as godlike "monarchs" of their brutal states, just like Hitler, Franco and Pinochet. Teilhard didn't mention them because they were theists. LOL!




And that so-and-so didn't mention the current Prime Minister of Australia, Miss Julia Gillard, who happens to be an atheist and extremely kind and compassionate person and a very progressive and decent politician.




The resident troll is like a broken record.

Dictators are almost always nasty too.
