Rob, Santaism and theism do not encourage integrity, i.e. behaving morally even when no one is watching you. Integrity is good.

Jeremy, your statement could use clarification. Would you rather your children have no conscience?

Behaving morally because you think Big Sky Daddy is watching is not a conscience. It is to a conscience as a crutch is to a leg.
