Jesus would like atheists more than Xtians

What’s the bet there is a negative correlation between deism and desire for compassate Oz policy for boat people?
The two-thirds majority that approve the Gillarbbott policies on asylum seekers is pretty much the same number that admitted to Christianity in the census. (see wikipedia)
While there are doubtless some non-hyprocritical Christians out there, it’s hard to accuse those godless latte-sippers of being the ones without compassion for the downtrodden, because the godless types are (unfortunately) in such a minority.
So… on the face of it, pick a random person who claims belief in a skyfairy, and more than likely the person is a hypocrite about compassion. Makes you wonder whether you can trust anything else they say.
Again, I’ll state there are some decent Xtians out there, but I’d wager their decency has nothing, absolutely nothing, to do with their Xtianity.
So… what do these churches actually do for us as a society, apart from the sort of cohesion we could get with a Nuremberg Rally?
Go on, play "Onward Christian Soldiers" with the large marching band, each player blowing their hearts out with the most suitable instrument – the dog whistle.
If there is a god as described in the Xtian bible, he doesn’t talk to unbelievers, because the unbelievers don’t need to be told to be compassionate to the most needy.
