Do you have proof that Stephen Paddock is an atheist? There doesn't seem to be anything on the internet that confirms that. You're really just playing the old game of pointing fingers at an entire group, based on rumour and unsubstantiated claims -that's either dishonest, or lazy, and is not the action of a responsible citizen.
So what was Stephen Paddock? A Christian? A Buddhist? An Agnostic?

No matter what he was, why don't we question his moral guidance from whatever he believed in, just as we question religion of a Muslim if he drinks or abuses his wife?

Are you saying an Atheists does not believe in any morals and he should not follow any morals?

Please correct me if I have false assumptions.

PS I am a nondrinking atheist that has been married for 49 years.
If the boss was not a Muslim, his religion would have NEVER mentioned in this post.

Why ask me? -you're the one proclaiming to know what he was.

Believing in morals, doesn't stop people from doing bad things, regardless of their belief.

The 'reason' I mentioned it on this thread is because her husband supposedly drinks and then hits her. I was asking if there was any religious guidance that could help both of them (being Muslims).

Like I said before: I don't know; I'm a atheist. I am just trying to help and asking if there is help out there.

Before any religious guidance, this person needs to be brought under the weight of law.

Religious guidance is always there - whether you are a Muslim a Christian or Jew, but notice that there are ALWAYS those in all groups who do not care or follow religious guidance - and hence, the local laws of the land are an alternative when applicable.

If religious guidance was fully followed by all Muslims then Muslims countries would not have any jails.
