    That was a good article, I am confident those are the forces at work. I live in Ohio where the Tea party is rampant and they intertwine everything with religion.

    No, this didn’t change my thinking at all. I just got back from NYC. The Occupiers of
    Zuccotti Park were hated by the residents of NYC. They came, they took, they complained and they were not even from NY. They were immensely disliked. They couldn’t even find the institutions they were there to protest. They kept the residents of NY from using their own park. A large number were atheist. This is why atheist are so disliked.

    Ah.. so now we know the real reason Atheists are hated in the U.S.A.and it has nothing to do with religion, it’s all about keeping NY residents out of their own park.
    I would never have guessed.

    This is one reason theists are so disliked by atheists – because they lie about atheists.

    Any stats to back that up?

    A large number were probably Christian too. So what?

    Also: It is impossible to stage a protest without disrupting someone’s life. Or a parade. Or a presidential visit. Or a street festival. Or a holiday. Or a football game. Or… Are you suggesting that all of these things should be banned?

    Man, on Jan 1st in Philly they hold a Mummer’s Parade. It is a debacle of public drunkenness, rowdiness and really, really poor taste in music.
    The majority of them are Christians. That is why christians are so disliked.

    Of course, RC would love to ban anyone who doesn’t agree with them from speaking or being heard. That’s another reason christians are so disliked.

    That would make a great new thread… 100 reasons why christians are so disliked.

    hahaha.

    I just read through this. Didn’t read anything about Christian.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mummers_Parade

    But you would actually compare rape, drug use, theft and rioting at a protest event on private property with a parade?

    Sure.

    Mummers have as much to do with christianity as Occupy Wall Street has to do with atheism…… that was the point.
    The fact that some mummers are christian means as much as the fact that some occupiers are atheists…. nothing.
    It’s like saying Mafia families are mostly Catholic.. that’s why people hate Catholics. Sorry if the point was too subtle for you dude.

    Spoken like a true loving Christian. And, I think you demonstrated the point “How could a religion supposedly based on love harbor so much hatred for another group of fellow human beings?” better than the author could have. Thanks.

    In God We Trust.” It is our position that the inclusion of that motto on coins and currency violates the Free Speech, Free Exercise and Establishment clauses of the First Amendment and the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution of the United States in that it is a religious phrase showing that the government has selected and established a particular monotheistic type of religion. Atheists, as other citizens, must carry with them at all times and “present” this religious slogan, presumably as their own, every time they purchase with cash. It, therefore, violates the Free Exercise clause.

    In addition, Atheists cannot remove this religious slogan because there is a criminal law (18 U.S.C. Sections 331 and 333) prohibiting same, and thus they are denied the right of free speech and equal protection under the laws, being forced to speak the religious words of Congress by repeatedly presenting the religious motto and slogan adopted by the United States Congress.

    We also find it particularly inappropriate, in conjunction with the trust of H.R. 3314, to slander the founding document that this bill purports to commemorate by including such religious graffiti as the motto “In God We Trust” along with the designs suggested by the bill. I would be far more in keeping with the nature of the document that H.R. 3314 seeks to commemorated to have the coins on which such commemoration appears remain as secular as the Constitution itself. We would like to propose the substitution of the phrase “E Pluribus Unum” for the motto “In God We Trust.”

    The historical importance of that phrase and its origin was presented succinctly in a paper read at the Annual Convention of the American Numismatic Association, Buffalo, N.Y., August 23 to 28, 1930, by C. W. Foster, entitled “Origin and History of the Two Mottoes Used on Modern United States Coins.”
