Not nearly as good a chance as you think.

In fact, I'd be willing to bet that if you god and your Jesus DO exist, you're in for a big surprise.

And not the kind you'd like to think it is.

You may want to seriously consider changing YOUR ways.

Why won't you answer my question? Does Jesus approve of your behavior on these threads or not? Are you afraid to answer? Or do you not care what Jesus thinks?

...Unless one is saved by faith alone, in which case believers are free to behave as they like.

True.

But who knows?

Even the Christians can't figure that one out.

Too much of a majority, you're all viewed as being under one umbrella now.

You're no better and you couldn't begin to even imagine the likes of my mind.

Your religion is dastardly.

Pretty much. According to the myth's precepts, Hitler and Dahmer are in heaven right now.

Speaks for itself. We're all human beings. Some are superstitious and some aren't. That's all.
Religion = superstition
A poll in 2012 suggested only 54% of USAmericans would vote for a President who wasn't a believer...

When you allege bigotry, what specifically are you referring to?

In other words, no, you don't count secular organizations, even though they may be founded and run by non-religious people. Which makes me wonder how you differentiate a non-religious person from an atheist.
My friend we all support government sanctioned secular organizations through our local, state and federal tax dollars.

Like for example the County or State Hospital where you live.

Now you bring up a good discussion point. A non-religious person or Atheist? I would say for example a non-religious person would be someone like Bill Gates. He has never declared he is an Atheist. He doesn’t promote Atheism in any fashion.

He is just a non-religious person that doesn’t put any thought into any religion or Atheism for that matter. Bill Maher for example is an Atheist. He believes in Atheism and promotes Atheism. Big difference between him and Bill Gates.

Then why cling to atheism? It holds no answers, has no practical knowledge, does not seek truth, does not teach you to be open-minded. The only thing atheism might teach you (laughs) is that the Christian God doesn't exist.

How do you account for all the Scientific achievements by Christian, Jews and people of faith which includes the man who fathered the Scientific Method?

Atheism promises nothing.
It is merely the lack of belief in the supernatural.
That's not what the First Church of Atheism teaches you...

It teaches you to hold onto your beliefs.
