The stigma and persecution that atheists get in the US and other religious countries seems like it can be just as bad as what Jews face :/

I'm sure we all appreciate the venting threads such as this one, you're not alone. I like it when other atheists feel the same way about these kinds of things Smile

Religion is the problem, not atheism.

Read an article in USA Today that in the US, atheists are as distrusted as rapists. I'll post the link later.

Where do they get their facts? Sad

Come and live in the UK, experience a truly accepting society for atheists.

Even with as misunderstood that we are, I wear my atheist bracelet loud and proud. I don't wear it for attention or to "be like the jeebots " but because other atheists out there should know that theyre not the only ones dealing with stupid shit.

Luke: You don't believe in the Force, do you?

Han Solo: Kid, I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other, and I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen *anything* to make me believe that there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything. 'Cause no mystical energy field controls *my* destiny. It's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.

Churches are very comfortable with lying to their sheeple, they've been doing it for a very long time. It's really a no-brainer for them to say whatever crap that comes to mind in regards to atheists.

Modern Christian facts:

Atheists are bad for god
Jebus rode a veloceraptor on his days off
All creatures great and small slept peacefully on a boat once
Gays are evil heathens
Murder if OK if in the name of {enter god name of choice}
No God, No fear.
Know God, Know fear.

Having slaves is OK.
Beating your slaves is OK. (As long as you do it the right way and it takes a few days for them to die from it.)

From the popular and unfounded idea that God is the source of every moral thought.

Usually with ignorance comes religion and with religion comes intolerance. That's probably what happens in the US, mainly in the south... Seriously, distrusting atheists more than rapists? Get your fucking facts straight.

Makes me feel like this sometimes. Especially at events that offer a public prayer or demand the same amount of respect for God Bless America as for the national anthem.

You think atheists are misunderstood...? The gods get it bad.
Please give me a home where cloud buffalo roam
Where the dear and the strangers can play
Where sometimes is heard a discouraging word
But the skies are not stormy all day
