Distrust from the devout until you remind them of police

From the Conversation:
But despite their much-better-than-average behaviour, atheists continue to suffer the widespread distrust of the devout. Those who believe an ever-vigilant deity keeps tabs on and judges their deeds have trouble comprehending how anyone can be “good without god” (as the Sydney Atheists‘ motto goes).
It seems they almost think that if you don't believe in a supernatural policeman, then you are exempt from consequences from your actions, until you remind them that we are all subject to a rule of law policed by police and judged in the courts.
