Glenn Beck blames Atheists for all of America's problems. He also learns to sarcasm

I can only assume he's trolling at this stage.

Glenn Beck can bring some good points to the table sometimes, and other times he makes me feel ashamed to watch him.

But I will say that people have done some pretty horrid things under the name of God, but at the same time, your average citizen who has moderate religious beliefs probably also has higher ethical standards than your average atheist; but that's not saying they're the cause of the US's problems either.

Glenn Beck is amazing. Seriously, if there was a Mental Gymnastics event at the Olympics, he would win the gold every single year.

Woah, woah, woah. Says who? Believing in God does not, in any way, make you more moral. If a majority of the US population believes in god then doesn't that, by extension, mean that a majority of the people committing crimes and doing immoral things also believe in god?

I'm not convinced that 1/4 US population is doing bad things based on being atheist.

That is not true at all. Examples of atheist unethical tendancies, please.

Religious people are more ethical? Are murder, genocide, hatred, racism, and lying ethical?

No, false, incorrect, wrong.
No correlation has ever been shown between religious belief and quality of ethical standards. In fact, if anything, the opposite is true. Prison populations are overwhelmingly religious. Countries that are less religious are less likely to go to war. Countries that are less religious have less homicides.
Of course all of that means very very little, but I'm not using it to make sweeping and incorrect generalisations about people.

Religious people don't do a lot of things because they choose to abstain in the name of something bigger than themselves.

Atheists have nothing other than there own secularism to look up to, and therefore have no qualms in doing something that a religious person would say is unethical etc.

As far as what I bolded, I was referring to your average religious citizen. Not nations and fundamentalist extremists.

I never said that, but I did say that on average, a MODERATELY religious person has more ethics and moral responsibilities versus an average atheist.

But being religious doesn't change if your a bad problem, and therefore what Beck said is stupid.

at his mannerisms.

He's acting so disappointed and patronizing. What, does he expect people to watch this and say, "Wow, Glenn, I never thought of it that way! You've convinced me to believe in God." As if it's actually possible to decide to believe in something...

EDIT:

Ethics are entirely subjective, though. Religious people may find it unethical to drink alcohol, consume drugs, or have premarital sex. Atheists may have no problems with those activities. Are you implying that alcohol, drugs, and premarital sex are the underlying causes of all of America's problems?

This is also not true at all. You do not need to believe in a higher power to abstain from doing immoral things. If that's the case, then religious people who aren't doing immoral things don't do it simply out of fear of punishment, which really makes them no more moral than anyone else.

I'm an atheist and I take extreme offence to that. You're saying that I'm less likely to be an ethical person than an adult with an imaginary friend? You sir have very little faith in humanity if you believe that about people. I would actually say atheists are more likely to behave in an ethical manner because they aren't as likely to behave irrationally in the name of an abstract higher power.

Their own secularism, and the good of their society and their neighbor.

A standard, god fearing individual, lives their life trying to impress their god so they can get into their heaven, rather than trying to further their society and help their neighbor.

Please, your ignorance is killing me. Your idea might sound alright on the internet, but it just doesn't apply in real life. If a person who believes in god wants to steal something, his belief in god isn't going to prevent him from doing so. Look at the mob, they are all standard Christians. Are they murderers, kidnappers, and thieves? Yup.

Now I can't be arsed to find those exact statistics, but I'm pretty sure atheists account for something like 5% or less of the total population in American prisons.

I generally agree with Glenn Beck, because he talks about issues that no one else talks about. This, however, I disagree with. It is religion that's the cause for a lot of wars going on right now.

Well then, we disagree. But I never said that it made you a bad person. I'm religious, but I don't talk about it nor do I get angry at other people who don't believe in anything.
