Go to: Hitler, Stalin, Mao, etc. were atheists, and they were terrible! Answer that!

It is the justification one uses for an action which bears the brunt of the blame, or praise. Justification requires a philosophy, or frame of reference.

Atheism is a label, or shortcut, for a single negation concept, (e.g. God does not exist) and anything after that is a philosophy subscribed to by that individual. The actions of an atheist are justified (or not) by that individual's philosophy, not the one concept of atheism.

Religion on the other hand has rules, doctrine, and organizations that define the entire philosophy by which actions can be justified (or not).

Stalin was a Stalinist who also may have been an atheist.
Hitler was a Fascist who also may have been an atheist.
