    How much self-censorship are you asking of atheists?

    They get denied ad space to just display a sign that says Atheist: http://nepafreethought.org/...

    I think asking groups to self-censor themselves because it might offend someone is in bad form. The very existence of Atheists offend most xtians and other fundies and asking them to self-censor themselves would be like asking them to go back into the atheist "closet" to use a gay term. I guess I can relate to their situation because I am gay and been around in the gay movement for decades. There's a reason why we rallied around SILENCE = DEATH. Unless we make noise and raise our voices and shout louder than the people trying to drown us, we will be ignored and silenced. And I can't help but think that's what most religious people want to do to atheists because they had no problem doing it to LGBTs.
