I disagree, I was brought up to believe that no matter who you are and
where you are, you are to help the suffering, the poor, the sick, and
This is also the belief of jesus christ. But alas such a noble soul is
found rarely today because not all of my brethren truly believe in him.
aka they use it for power. Though I bet if not for religion we humans
would have found some other way to screw up the world. Humans are very
creative at being evil sometimes.

Exactly my point. That is why we humans need God. To point out our
flaws and then to help us to correct our actions. Those who rebel
against this notion whether they think they believe or not are on shaky
Especially those who pretend, they have no forgiveness to look forward
to due to their pride.
I myself hope to never go down that road again... ps, I don't like
capitalism so don't think I am conservatives what so ever... ;)
not all black people live in inner cities the same way not all
christians are conservatives
my point stands..
