There is another man that is unhappy. He grew up in less than desirable conditions. He robbed and stole and killed and raped and mutilated little children. He was going to be put to death so he asked a priest to "save him". He accepted jesus as his christ. Then he died.

You're making assumptions that really aren't true.
My parents didn't teach me jack squat to be honest with you. I didn't know lying, theft, adultery, even murder...never considered them sin(until after I had read the bible)....I simply knew they weren't RIGHT.....no one had to TEACH me anything...
The knowledge is inherent. You don't learn that stuff, you just know. I didn't LEARN morals...I was born with them...I didn't learn RIGHT from WRONG...I just always knew...
Just like in the case of my little nephew...he's 3...he'll take the pacifier away from his little sister and then go and hide...because he knows it's wrong...I've never told him it was wrong...his mother never directly tells him it's wrong...his dad never tells him it's wrong...he just knows...all they have to do is say "HEY..." and he knows exactly what they're talking about....
