Cubist, that's the way it might seem to an atheist, but that's because our morality has no firm foundation, we just cling to the Golden Rule and think that mass death is bad. Sadly, we have no moral norm beyond, "I wouldn't like mass death if it happened to me." Pure selfishness, in other words. "Death is icky, so don't do it to me."
If we'd just read the Bible and go to church once in a while, we'd be regaled with tales of God Himself killing people by the thousands. The Flood, the First-Born Egyptians, all the plagues, etc. Not to mention slavery being perfectly ok, along with it's correlate, selling your virgin daughter as a slave, along with slaughtering the inhabitants of cities you conquer down to the last Man, Woman, Child and presumably Unborn Child. That's providing you slaughter their cattle too, of course.
And worst of all, Making it hard to go to Mass or other religious services. Hey, they NEED those donations!
