.

There are very few believers who accept the entirety of there church's dogma. The moral compass they use to decide what to take and what to ignore would function just fine without the religion involved.

For instance, the OT, which all 3 Abrahamic religions are based on, clearly supports slavery. Few modern Abrahamists find it permissible. They got that moral from *outside* the religion.

So, it's not even a crutch for most, and the few that it is are themselves immoral.

But this goes to my point.

I totally agree with you that these people "should" be able to point their "moral compass" outside of religion (though "should is a cognitive distortion), but many cannot.

For some their "god" is what guides them...some for good and some not so good.

Quoting Dean:
While the Athiest may believe and can still be "good and morale" the devout may need this belief to sustain them.
I know this goes with "crutch" and many of the other words on there (let's add "co-dependency"), but there are times when belief does make a better person regardless of the fairy tale.
It would also be poignant to put this word in there to create a nice dichotomy ;)

Diametrically opposed to everything I had written there is also "Love."
