Great article find. I thnk that we are a minority in this country and the US, without sounding “all lefty”, hasn’t done the best job protecting minorities.

The good new is that we are a strong and growing group of people who take rationality and humanity seriously and with deep care.

The other good news is that while we are a minority in the US, we are not so in Europe and other continents and countires.

In fact, we’re about 1.4 billion strong, roughly a good 20% of the Earth’s population, and growing. This is at the same time religioisty is shrinking. Nice!

Cheers,
David

Hi David,
Yo, thanks for your thoughts:) Let’s be optimistic that as our numbers grow, the persecution will stop. Keep reaching for that rainbow!

The ironic thing is that Christians think *they* are the ones being “persecuted” in Western societies.

Welcome to Gabbin' About God, sponsored by Ace Religious Supplies, where they say, “If we don't got it, it ain't holy.”

Just kidding. This is Not My God, a site for the personal aspect of atheism. I'm putting together a book with that title, having already 20 interviews lined up, but I still want to hear from more of you.
I've expanded the blog to include material not related to atheism, including rants, raves, consumer issues, curmudgeonly matters and other miscellany.
