You read that upside down! I meant most theists are the disbeleivers in
personal responsibility. After all, if God is omnipotent and we are all
doing God's will, why should we be concerned about taking any responsibility
for our own lives?
I gladly take responsibility for my own actions and the results thereof.
It's my way of controlling my environment.
