  •  Atheism creeps me out (0+ / 0-)

    so it's mutual. :P

    •  It might be mutual but it's not (0+ / 0-)

      equivalent.

      The Christian parade is so enormous, there's no way I could possibly rain all over it. I can drink a gallon of water an hour and try my best, but you still win. Your God presides over my life.

      Atheists aren't stalking Christians. It's the other way around.

      •  Local effects (0+ / 0-)

        Globally, nationally, there's no question.  In localized scenarios, it's another question entirely: people don't get much flak on Kos for making fun of Christians, not so I've noticed.  As a liberal Christian, I've got conservative born-agains on my right, smug prosyletizing atheists (not you; the adjectives aren't redundant) on my left, and not much of a parade in the middle of the street.  

        So it goes.

        I acknowledge that Americans need to stop equating atheism with immorality or evil. A religion that can't handle the existence of dissenters is a pathetic thing.
