 Let atheists back into office

Mike Whitney laments that there is but one rule for American nonbelievers: keep your head down and your mouth shut.
[H]ow is it that politicians, entertainers or whomever can expound ad nauseam about God and, yet, the views of atheists are scrupulously omitted from the media. (With all the religious programming on TV and radio, have you ever heard an atheist offering his point of view?) If 90% of the population were so secure in their beliefs, it certainly wouldn’t hurt to get a second opinion, would it?

The fact is atheism simply doesn’t exist in America. It is the forbidden topic, like homosexuality 20 years ago.... The fact that the vast majority of Americans accept the existence of some super-human phenomenon, of which there is no scientific proof, shows that religion has been the most successful PR campaign in the history of mankind. Regrettably, in our "free" society, no one is even allowed to openly debate the issue.

I don't follow this rule at work. Just as my co-workers can discuss their religious beliefs, so do I discuss my non-belief in a god(s).

Simply put that is Bull Shit! While I was serving in the Air Force I talked openly with other about my non belief and there were many like me. You know what, there were plenty of people ready to try to turn me into a beliver and none succeeded. The problem with most of the Atheists today that aren't out in the open is that they are simply cowards. I had great discussions with people about my way of thinking. But you know why I was successful in talking to them? It was because I didn't have a problem with them believing in God. I don't have a problem today with any one from any religion. I don't think it is a problem for people to bring their thoughts to the table and share what they believe or don't believe, because most intellegent people can accept others for who they are, because they are in the same human family. So stop fucking whining about being some pathetic minority that doesn't get the attention you want.
