To Promote Atheism Is to Promote Crime

Many promoters of atheism make a personal claim about themselves; they don’t need to “believe” in Divine punishment here or in the afterlife to avoid committing crime.

Forget about whether the claim is valid, what with accuracy, the true definition of “crime”, competing explanations, the non-sequitur, etc. etc. There’s a bigger problem: For other individuals, predictions of punishment do act as a deterrent.

If they do succeed in corrupting someone else, someone who does, in fact, require this doctrine to stay innocent of a crime, these promoters have thereby lowered the subjective costs of committing crimes (howsoever defined), while all the perceived benefits remain just the same.
It follows promoters of atheist beliefs for every man on earth are promoters of criminal activity.
