I suggest you read up on DJs again because this is a whopper. I can't name one agnostic/atheist/secular person that rejects religion because they don't want to feel guilt for the bad stuff they do. Nor will I cite statistics that demonstrate an inverse correlation between atheism and crime (since "immoral" behavior is not really quantifiable).

I reject the notion of God because I have never seen any evidence to suggest his existence, and religion gets the same level of skepticism from me that any other aspect of my life gets. I have no problem with faith and the people who have it. As a matter of fact, my girlfriend is catholic. I only get upset when faith (of any religion) is used as a basis for legislation.

I didn't want to sidetrack this thread, but I had to point out how woefully uninformed the bolded statement was.
