Observing Creationists in their Natural Habitat

Fair and balanced interviews!
“It’s World War II, during the Holocaust. You are being told, at gun point, to bury Jews who have been shot. Some are still alive. Do you do it?”
“No, I would not do it. I would be shot before I did.”
“Well, how do you feel about abortion?”
“I believe you should be able to choose.”
“Well, you are now as bad as Nazis during the Holocaust.”

Well, that escalated quickly.

From the same place:

“If you don’t believe in a Creator who gave us moral laws, then you have no basis for believing that anything is right or wrong. Therefore, to accuse Christians of being like ISIS is completely invalid because your worldview can’t even explain why this would be a bad thing!”

Now, I would never accuse most Christians of being like ISIS. In fact, I would also not accuse most Muslims of being like ISIS…

But am I the only one who is positively, pants-shittingly terrified whenever someone says “I am only a decent person because God”?

I’d like to think I am a decent person because being a decent person is a decent thing to do, because it maximizes happiness in everyone around, which ends up making every day better for everyone.
