Fascist muslims in Indonesia persecuting Aan for his atheism is no surprise. Fascist christians in the US aren't appalled at what happened, they're jealous that they can't get away with it.

If theofascist Americans could, persecute, assaul and murder atheists, they would. Just today (May 3) christards made death threats against two atheists who planned to make public speeches.

where did this happen?
I wish the fascist types - as you call them - would just fight each other. Yet often the most evil extremists seem more opposed to moderates and humanitarians than they are to the evil extremist of another faith.

This is why I mock and ridicule zealots, not because their religion threatens my lack of one, but because their religions threaten everyone's freedom. The US is dangerously close to something like this happening.

you are an idiot who does not read my posts carefully, and just makes up lies about what I think. your style and attitude is very much like that of the fundies and the rightwing political extremists in the US.
only your extremist view is acceptable to you, and anyone who even slightly disagrees with you becomes your enemy, whom you can lie about. one would think you are a fundie from your tactics.
everyone on here knows that I am an agnostic atheist. I have made it very clear, so many times. I have said that I like many theists better than some atheists, however. and you are definately included among the socalled atheists whom I dislike. I personally think that you are a true believer - in your own arrogant self.

I am not sure to whom you reply - except possibly to the entire situation, being discussed here, and the tentative approaches to such extremism in the US. I like it very much that you use the term zealots, and do not attack all who profess some religious faith.
I still believe that a coalition of the rational thinkers -real skeptics, nonbelievers, agnostics,atheists, etc - with the nicer persons who still self-identify with some religion but do not embrace the worst of its doctrines (hell, need for salvation, and salvation through one's belief and obedience, blood sacrifice, threats of punishment, preferential treatment for chosen peoples and persons, end of world scenarios, etc) is a possible way to help improve the world, one cause at a time, one issue at a time, with shifting coalitions, and some persons (mostly the rational ones, but also some believers) involved in many such good causes. Civil libertarians who support separation of church and state can include theists who have some education about history, and some respect for the Constitution, and even who have confidence that their religious views do not depend on state power to enforce them.
People who have humane attitudes toward women, children, animals, the environment - can be theists, and can work for causes and not just sit back and think that whatever is is right, because God's plan is being carried out (which is the lazy way out of taking responsibility, as well as being stupid). I suppose skeptic will be nasty again, but I do not think you will be.

And some religious people wonder why Atheists care about religion. This BS is one of the reasons!

Haven't forgotten, your post exemplifies reason, tolerance and humanism. It is a puff of rationality in a hurricane of stupidity, superstition, and oppression. If there were a God, I'd thank it for people like you. Wish there were more.

This comment might seem to support the statement in post number 1, "..If theofascist Americans could, persecute, assault and murder atheists, they would."?

Some (nice) religionists have argued (here on Topix) that Bush41's comment...
http://www.positiveatheism.org/writ/ghwbush.h...
..wasn't sincere and should be dismissed, despite the fact that he has never withdrawn it; nor has his son distanced himself from it.

Quote Bush41, "No, I don't know that atheists should be considered as citizens, nor should they be considered patriots. This is one nation under God."

Atheism isn't treated any worse than religion in the USA, but what is there to support behind Atheism. The American government is a Christian or Muslim, why would he support another religion.

It's Indonesia, for crying out loud. Talk about scrapping the bottom of the barrel for getting sympathy, this is just atheists' desperation. I'm sure someone could find a fanatic anything in Indonesia where each year at this time some idiot gets himself crucified as Christ.
