Will believers run amok?

We had all better hope that the claimed discovery of Jesus' stone ossuary is a hoax.

You can't believe how many times I, as a non-believer, have been asked, "What keeps you from killing and stealing if you don't believe in Jesus?" Apparently, if the discovery should prove to be true, then Christians will run amok in the streets killing, raping and stealing since their belief is all that holds them back. - William M. Hooks, Mesa
