  •  Yes, but please remember that religion, race, (0+ / 0-)

    sex, etc. are mentioned in the CR Act in the context of protecting minority rights.  To wit, women have much greater cause (not to mention occasion) for claiming discrimination on the basis of sex than do men, even though there are (according to biology, if not sociology) two sexes.  And blacks more basis for claiming race-based discrimination than whites, and so on.  I suspect that a member of a locally unpopular and thinly populated faith would have much more cause to claim religious harassment, etc. than I would as a Presbyterian.

    Atheism is a best-selling phenomenon, and swipes against faith are very much a part our pop culture, so this is not an issue of the majority culture grievously harassing a powerless subgroup.  Which, of course, won't stop Dawkins, et al. from characterizing it as just that.  That line works, so they use it.
