    I'm 78 years old and during my lifetime this nation's overall attitude about religion has morphed from one which didn't even have the choice of NONE, AGNOSTIC or ATHEIST on military enlistment forms to one where those who doubt can openly declare it on desktop computers in their home so millions can read it.

    When I was in grammar school, 3rd and 4th grades we began each day with the pledge of allegiance and the lord's prayer. The teachers assigned each student a bible verse on Monday's to memorize and recite back to the class on Thursdays or Fridays. Let them try that horse shit now.

    Because of my childhood brainwashing with that ancient fairy tale it took me 60 years to get over it. I will be voicing my opinion about the whole story until I die.

    If the god of the universe came down 2000 years ago and dropped off the only keys to the kingdom with a bunch of ignorant camel herders who believed in ghosts and witches and thought the earth was flat he/she/it has one helluva sense of humor.

    You mean they might genuinely be persecuted?

    The same way we've almost always been treated as a minority. Badly.

    But that wont be for a long time. Just because less than %50 of Americans are protestant, doesnt mean most people arent Christian.
