Only that they are no worse. I disagree with the assertion that being a godly nation somehow protects us from abusing human rights and whatever else was being alluded to above & below. Religion can accommodate all manner of evil, just as secular societies can.

The problem is you forget where religious ideas on morality come from. They come from within us. We have the same capacity for good and evil regardless of weather or not we consider ourselves religiously affiliated. Religion hasn't kept us from abusing human rights and secularism won't save us either.
