Good post.<quoted text>
Actually, I was being flippant...
In the context of my post, "insist" had nothing to do with "acceptable or normal". It had to do with bring forceful or demanding.
I don't think atheists are unacceptable or abnormal, not at all. I'm sorry that you have that impression of me.
I think most atheists are pretty good people. It's the ones that seek to remove religion & change America to their "my way or the highway" attitude that I have a problem with.
Nevertheless, you have it.
It's good to see this from you.
But you fail to see who is pushing the "my way or the highway" theme.
It's not atheists. It's fundies.
Atheists are the ones fighting that, since people like you remain silent when the fundies start pushing.
