    The notion that atheism is "a faith" (singular since we all agree with each other) seems to start and end with the notion that we're equally fallible to the traditionally religious.

    It doesn't extend to the suggestion that atheism should be given respect as a philosophical tradition and probably shouldn't be discussed unless you're fluent in the key ideas, developments, and debates which is a complaint commonly raised regarding attempts to analyze theistic religion.

    Nor does it extend to the suggestion that our celebrants and interfaith workers are a part of interfaith work. Or that we shouldn't be discriminated against in the military, BSA, or other organizations. Or that we shouldn't be openly insulted on the house floor as part of political debate in the United States.
