No. Atheism is a position on religion. The state should be neutral in matters of religion. That means not endorsing any view on the subject, including atheism. Government involvement in religion, like religious involvement in government, does not end well for either religion or government.

Equating secularism to atheism is yet another example of christians bearing false witness, in violation of their own cult's commandments and rules.

A country without an official religion DOES NOT ban religion, but if he didn't repeat that lie, he wouldn't be able to force his cult onto others. Asking that religion be kept in private and not in public is as reasonable as expecting Oerlich to keep his genitalia private and not expose them in public. That's an apt analogy considering that the religious attempt to force themselves on others the same way that rapists do.

The most anti-religious people ARE religious people. They hate competition, so they try to eliminate any - by legal force if necessary, though they usually prefer elimination by violence.

Yes, they have enlisted an army of zombies to downvote Atheist posts and upvote troll posts.

And Topix don't give a f*ck & they know it, because they will delete this message.
