RE: Why a lack of religion is by nature more moral
There are even (a few) religious people who agree with you.
Quote:And it is the heart of Christian morality that it is not a self-interested quest to avoid Heaven or earn Hell, but rather a movement of love and worship from us children to the Father.
I couldn't have made that up, could I, with Heaven being the thing to avoid? It's verbatim from this long post by a self-proclaimed Catholic.

Religion (Christianity) not only threatens for behavior it deems bad, it also dangles the eternal reward carrot for behavior deemed good.
By being a follower of their rules a person cannot do anything outside of the religions definitions of good and bad.
This causes blind adherence without thought, and the illusion of objective morality.
