Fundamentalist Religious people like to believe that Atheists have no sense of morality. Some atheists fit that description, but others do have a set of moral values and we can show love and affection as any religious person.

Do only moral values you learn from religion are to hate those that are different and to become a butthole like their fake god is.

I will not become a brainless loser who worships a fake homicidal and hatred filled god. Even if he was real and I get to meet him I will spit in his face and yell out "F*** you, I bow down to no one"

Followers of the bible do not kill children who sass their parents, people who work on the sabbath or women who are not virgins on their wedding night, do not hold slaves, do not commit genocide, even though all of those things are either commanded or endorsed by the bible.

They do not do so because they exercise their own moral judgment as to which biblical commands to obey and which to ignore. This proves that the bible is not the source of their morals. At best, certain passages cherry picked from the bible, which are left after the believer's moral filter has filtered out all the horrifying immoral commands, are the source of their morals.
