I'll tell you what you did with Atheists for about 1500 years

seriously lol, when I hear christians acting like they're being persecuted I just want to spit in their faces and say, "well I guess it's time to reap what you've sewn!"

Oh I thought she ( the one who was pilfering money from her Atheist org.was writing about true Christians who were called "Atheists" by the Romans as well as by the false Roman church which was predicted would arise even describing some of it's teachings.(l Timothy 3:4:1-5)

For the same things she depicts for unbelievers or atheists (there have been few active atheists during the time she really is speaking about)were inflicted on Christians to the tune of over 50,000,000 during the Dark Ages.Whole families were drowned,hung,crucifed,burned alive,streched alive for days,starved,fed to lions,etc.

I have studied history since 1963,and many do not realize how vast the killing and torture of Christians was.

Anyone for any stated reason who perescured free thinker, atheists,etc was dead wrong and hopefully, at least in this country, their rights will be maintained and even fought for.Everyone must have their own beliefs.and be able to express them and this includes beleivers.All must respect each others rights,but may freely and properly debate if he or she so choses.Since we are all human there will be excesses on both sides ,etc.,but the rights of all must be preserved.

Madalyn wasn't "pilfering" money from American Atheists. That was the man who killed her, and her daughter. She was murdered because she discovered that he was stealing from the organization and then confronted him. Slandering her memory is unacceptable Dr. Davis! A little respect for the dead [especially the murdered] is needed here. Madalyn was a brilliant woman who founded one of the strongest atheist activist organizations in the country. I am a current member of this organization and would have been honored if I had had the chance to meet her, but sadly I came of age far too late.

PS... much of the "killing of christians" in past times was by OTHER CHRISTIANS!! There have been many bloody wars between catholics and protestants. The church killed anyone who dared write the bible in non-latin throughout the middle ages until the protestant reformation. Millions of innocent CHRISTIAN women were put to death as witches by OTHER christians! And the whole of the 4th crusade was directed by the church against a group of christians who believed heretical doctrines. Most of the slaying of innocent christians was done by other christians. But the time of christian persecution is over. It ended when the Roman Empire declared Christianity the official religion. The time of Christian persecution of ANYONE who disagrees has been going on ever since. And continues today.

http://www.infidels.org/library/modern/robby_berry/lioaca.html  Most christians who talk about being oppressed just don't realize how much our society is canted in their direction.  This satirical list really brings this to light.

Actually - much worse still happens in the Islamic world today.

Comment by Seth Jon Nonnemaker on August 5, 2011 at 12:42pm

What a sad world, and the thing is that a lot of religious people don't even know about all this stuff their kind of people did to our kind of people. You can't even tell if someone is Atheist or not by looking at them.

Yes, This is still happening in many parts of Islamic world. And this could be stopped by expansions of media and Internet in Islamic world. 

Comment by Sassan K. on August 5, 2011 at 1:03pm

I don't know about that secret - sadly, the Islamic world needs a renaissance and reformation period - until Muslims stop accepting the quran as the literal word of god - and that criticism of Islam, Muhammad, and their faith demands execution due to Shariah - the Islamic world has a long way to go.
