Yes, we do have our personal interests and safety in mind. Is that something theists resile from?

One's interests and one's morals are not always congruent. If you are a true atheist, who believes in no supreme good, you will choose your interests over your scruples every time. A theist will always choose their morals over their personal whims.

These arguments are so ignorant and pathetic. Anyone who thinks that theists have a superior moral centre because they believe in a supreme God; whereas atheists are somehow devoid of equal empathy, care and consideration for their fellow humans simply because they reject any such faith in God, are foolish in the extreme.
