    any reason why you think that atheists run america? Because I, an atheist, would argue that atheists are given less respect in politics and national issues.

    In several states an atheist cannot hold office. I don't know the others, but I know it's in the MD constitution.

    The federal government donates money to religious groups and reduce funding to nonreligious groups. This forces athesists who could be on down times, have a drug problem, etc. to go to a church.

    Gay marriage isn't allowed because the bible says so.

    Religious persecution in the military including forced religious services.

    foggy...we don't have majority rules...that would be a pure democracy, something we aren't.

    Sad for you that you hate the constitution.

    You seem to have a thing about atheists. Are you one of those religious freaks who believes that those that don't follow your own beliefs are somewhat inferior?

    Next you'll be calling for their execution, just like another group of religious zealots.
