I am convinced that everyone can develop a good heart and a sense of universal responsibility with or without religion.
This is a significant departure from the previous 13 incarnations known for maintaining a slave class on the basis of their lack of spiritual wealth and occasionally murdering rival sects. The current ghost-flesh symbiote has spent the majority of his life in the West and is western-educated. It is hardly a surprise his views are somewhat more progressive than his hand-chopping predecessors, even though they obviously share an immortal soul which is periodically recycled like a gossamer Pepsi can.
