1. Some people do lack empathy. Do they need religion?

People in high places no less.

2. It wouldn't help

People who lack empathy will ALWAYS find a way to justify their actions, religion or no. In fact most of the time such people don't bother trying to justify themselves, as they are unaware there is anything wrong with their actions.

Truth is religion often acts as a crutch for those who would act selfishly or cruelly towards others. They cannot be wrong, because God is on their side, yadda yadda yadda.

Or perhaps the Inquisition.
