Kari has been asked about atheists and their feelings. Yes, they have feelings. Yet, they can come to a well thought out decision about some matter that involves people. Feelings and logical thinking are input to weigh in all variables and come up with a smart decision. "The dog is suffering! We will put him to sleep."
Victoria Jackson or Bill O'Reilly on the other hand react from the gut and quickly announce a decision based on their life experience, the last sermon, or a Tiny Tim song. We never know. Puppies and fetuses are never killed, that much is clear.
There is then the average guy in the middle. They tend to ask their wife. Or have another beer. Perhaps an answer will come before the beer is gone.
I hope that helps.
