What he said...

Religion does not make a man either evil or virtuous. All of us have the capacity for both, and belief in a dogma does nothing to fundamentally change that.

When it comes to moral behavior, I'll trust a person who has attained a deep level of self awareness and self honesty over anyone who ascribes to a specific dogma -- any dogma.

Self deception, in my view, is the root of most evil, and only a moment by moment awareness that within ourselves we posses a nearly infinite capacity for self delusion, self justification and deceit can true morality begin to thrive.

Religion CAN lead a person to self awareness, but is just as likely or more likely to blind a person to their own imperfections. Beware the man who thinks himself virtuous, for he is capable of unspeakable horrors.
