 Christians are being attacked. No one respects us and we're going to be wiped from the face of society. We are being persecuted. Atheists actively abuse Christians and pass judgement on those who believe. They send death threats & blow up churches! Who's the most hated group of people in America? Why, Christians, of course. Just ask Pat Robertson & Michelle Malkin!

Christians disgust me...to treat another human being like that for purely religious (a,k,a, imaginary) reasons is just terrible.

I would be interested in seeing the localized results of that survey. 40% is a pretty terrifying figure. Glad I'm not marginalized in any practical sense where I live.

It truly is sad.

  • People like to hide from the truth... just look at today's political correctness... 
  • Early age indoctrination is a difficult thing for people without intelligence and self assurance to overcome...
  • There is safety in numbers and its easy to be part of a crowd...
  • Ego dictates that one must be right at all costs even when they are wrong...

However, the tide is turning... slowly people are waking from their deep slumber... and those that refuse to are defending themselves... The saying "methinks you doth protest too much..."

if it wasn't so sad it would be hilarious: the double standard the christians live by seeding so much hatred yet propagating their beliefs as a peaceful embracing and loving thing ... their Jesus would kick those assholes out of his gang for sure

The more important it is that more and more Atheists speak up and defend their views. Nobody should live in a world where (s)he feels like it is better to be a member of some random religion just to be able to live without being bullied.

While I am not marginalized in my circle of friends near Atlanta, my amazing 11 year old daughter who lives primarily with her mom in more distant backwards areas gets harassed for not believing in deities. The curious thing is that although I have been simply sharing my thoughts and experiences as she has gotten older, her conclusions to which she has already come were ones she formulated herself. And it's amazing the frankness and razor sharp perception a child has when they have learned to think for themselves. It can teach adults. I am so proud of her.

Dennis, I am also outside of ATL (Flowery Branch), and have also talked to my kids - and educated them - about the history and  beliefs of the religions they are most likely to encounter with their friends. The nice thing is that, in varying degrees, they are all nontheists. My eldest son is the most firm in his atheism, and fully calls himself atheist - and he's out of the closet as well.

 

I am very proud of them, and their abilities to cut through the BS and see religions for what they are.

This video almost brought me to tears.

@ Holland

 

While I understand your loathing of the Republican Party I can assure you that there are thousands of dyed-in-the-wool Democrats in my own county that would not hesitate to heap condemnation and ridicule upon the feeble atheist.
