No, because the principle is that all citizens are of the same Creator, and enjoy the same protections, whether they personally believe the same or differently. There is no accompanying requirement to believe anything. Freedom of conscience.
Its not a principle, its a delusion based on no evidence. A principle has to have substance and religion has none.

Its no wonder you believe in god, with a mind that thinks up such deliberately idiotic conclusions.

Your religion doesn't have any facts on its side, funny how you try so hard to make it seem important.
You are copying these posts, progressing straight down a list of atheist comments for Christians from some stupid book you have.

The giveaway is that you just copy them in for whatever response, not even checking to see who or what you are responding to.

It's not clever. It is not even intelligent.

It aint necessarily so wrote:
.[7] Deuteronomy 22 - "28 If a man happens to meet a virgin who is not pledged to be married and rapes her and they are discovered, 29 he shall pay her father fifty shekels[c] of silver. He must marry the young woman, for he has violated her. He can never divorce her as long as he lives."
Rape a women, you must marry her - her consent is irrelevant - and all is well. No concern is shown here for the victim, who is punished by having to marry her attacker. Women were viewed as property ("you break it, you bought it").
First off none of this is practiced in Hebrew society anymore. 2. Christians view the Old through the lens of the New. You must think these ancients should operate in accordance with 21st century American values when they lived 3000+ years ago. Completely different circumstances, customs. How stupid is that. You quote Deut. 22:28 and ignore the fact v.25 carries with it the death sentence for rapist. There are two explicit examples of rape in the Old and in both cases the rapists were killed. Rape of Dinah in Gen.34 and the rape of Tamar in 2 Sam. 13. Non virgins were not considered marriage material. Females had few options. The rapist was stuck taking care of the female for the rest of her life. Even if she hated him, he had to take care of her.
======
Now your faith has you defending rape as well as slavery.
IN your dreams Mr. copy paste.
I realize that this is not of your choosing. You just wanted to be a good guy and do the right thing, which you were told was to have faith in a god, not argue in support rape and slavery. But look at what that choice requires of you to defend.
You are a biblical illiterate who is spoon fed from hostile websites. You do not care about rape or pre arranged marriages which was common back then and is common today in parts of the world. Are they rapists also? Can you name the two examples of slave revolt from the Old? You only desire is to bash scripture. Besides all that being atheist you have no objective basis to whine about any of this.

Amusing.
Rational people don't get on here and rant against something they can't know is true or not, nor against the vast majority of human beings belief in such.
But you do.
You believe there is a conspiracy that has been ruunign for thousand fo years to make people dumb. Except yourself of course, and those few that agree with you.
You're a special pathology, oops, sorry, I meant group of intelligent people, that know the REAL TRUTH, aren't you?

It is interesting how his pathology convinces himself that his shouting from his manual of neo-atheism that he is handing you your ass on a platter. This is common among that group.

These forums are really an interesting development. Once upon a time you had to wait for the mentally ill to commit an act to reveal themselves. Now mental health professionals can monitor forums and target those that need some intervention.
