I figure a good person will continue to be good, with or without religion, though some religions can confuse that person into thinking something detrimental is actually "good." On the other hand, I think an asshole is going to be an asshole, regardless of what religion he or she follows, because being an asshole is a religion in its own right.
To quote Steven Weinberg:

"With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion."
