"Does Religion Make You Nice?" or "Does atheism make you mean?" are questions asked wrongly I think...

In Christianity, you are saved by faith and grace not by works or morality since everyone is fall short of the glory of God. On the other hand, atheists are not mean, what defines an atheist is as the word itself suggests, without committing himself or herself into a religion.

Christainity has been tainted by a lot of dirty peoples' dirty works. But they were not considered as Christians and would be denied by Jesus. Matthew 7:21-23: "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?' Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'"
