Does God's watchful eye keep us in line?

Skeptics member JC recently wrote a great letter to the editor, which appeared in the Hook!

The Hook published an essay a couple months ago discussing if we need the guidance of religion or God watching over us in order to inspire kindness.

Unfortunately The Hook made JC edit down his letter, but the original Hook essay, JC's published letter and his original longer version are all available here (click on essay):

(Essay wasn't available online - so this file is a scan. PDF may take a minute to download).

We had a good discussion related to this topic at tonight's meeting! So what do you think, does religion or a watchful god contribute to good behavior or altruism?
