Some religious persons have told me that non belief in God will end in nihilism or being immoral such as Singer. My thought is, can't both or any ideology take you to pits of human imagination? Is there proof that religion always makes people more moral? Is there any proof that being religious actually leads to a more moral life?
How can a Catholic explain Fr. Maciel of the Legionaries? Here is this man, second to the Pope. I remember when I had many friends who were members of Regnum Cristi or the Legionaries. They would wax eloquently about how their order was so holy the priests were ordained by the Pope himself. They were not under a Diocese. Does any one see a huge coincidence? Here we have one of the most corrupt religious founders I know of and he is second only to the Pope. Could it be a coincidence? I think not. And for me, it causes a shadow to fall over JPII. How could he not have known?
I could go on. But I would like to hear from others on why they think it is more likely or less likely to be moral and good with or without religion. What proof do you have?
