But for some people, disagreeing with them means you are infringing on their right to free speech.

We see Americans becoming more accepting and approving of atheists by the day. Recent polling shows that a whopping 30% of Americans age 30 and under now are non believers. Christian and other religious leaders are calling this a crisis and holding emergency meetings about this. The world is progressing past the God of Abraham and gods/spirits in general.

Says the idiot who failed to convince anyone that Jesus rode on the backs of dinosaurs.
