Pol Pot was an atheist
Yes, it is true that Pol pot was an atheist, but that did not make him a bad person, or influence him to make bad decisions. Atheism is only the disbelief in God, not the belief in any dogma or rules. This means that Atheism is not a reason to kill, not for Pol pot nor anyone. He can be known as a bad person but not for being atheist.
