Just because you don't believe in a God doesn't mean you're amoral. There are plent of religious people who have their morals out of whack bit think its ok because they repent on Sundays.

Maybe if you're talking about the Kardashians, but I don't think there are "plenty" of religious people who have their morals out of whack and are OK with it.

Seems like you are a little jaded.
I know what you're trying to say, but I have to disagree.
When I hear a Christian say it's wrong to drink until you are drunk, and then see them drunk a week later, I view it as them admitting a weakness. They know it's wrong, everyone knows they know it's wrong, yet they are doing it anyway.
I used to call them hypocrites, but it's not like I haven't said one thing, done another, and regretted both before.
There are different levels of being a Christian. You have the Christian who knows what they believe but are following a different path & then there are Christians who eat, live & are totally dedicated to God. It is defined as what relationship does a person have with God. An Interlectual or Intimate. Interlectual is that you know the Bible & God & have knowledge of him. Intimate relationship is that you are totally dedicated in your religion & have that close relationship with God & the way you live shows it.So if you belive, but your everyday actions do not indicate it, Then you have a Interlectual relationship & your conscience will keep directing you back towards your belief. And this is not to indicate that a Athiest does not have a conscience. EVERYONE has a conscience. But not always does being a christian mean you do everything right. I usually do not reply to these type of post. But I felt compelled to share my point of veiw.
