    Would an Anarchist vote for the Anti-christ?

    No moral compass, no vote.

    Non sequitur. Atheist does not equal no moral compass.

    That is simply no true. Atheists can and do have a deep moral compass.

    Don't dehumanize atheists. All people have the same conscience. There are many atheists who are governed by their conscience, and many professing Christians who ignore their conscience.

    A book of rules doesn't constitute "deeper" law.

    Not a book of rules but an openness to a higher power that can help guide your decisions.

    That's either your own consciousness or your ethics based on what you read in a book.

    Sometimes I get burned out on the thought of a "god" whatever that is. All the suffering in the world at times makes me think their just can't be a caring God so I quit my morning prayer. After a while things start seeming bleak though so I start to pray again and immediately things are better so it works for me.
