How are we Atheists seen to the world

Nearly half of all Americans said they would hate it if they had an Atheist in-law, apart from showing how fucked up Christians are in America, this also shows how far the secular movement has to go in convincing people of the validity of their argument. But I would like to turn the proposition around and ask how would you as Atheists feel if someone in your family proposed to marry a “bathed in the blood of Christ, fire and brimstone, Bible thumpers”. Because that I think is the equivalent of how these Christians in America see us Atheist   i.e. strident and  closed minded. I for one don’t believe this is the case, but how do you as Atheist think we are coming across to the wider world.

Onyango that's the problem, you try to stay under the radar screen, but a lot of the time they wont let you. In some countries if you are found out for being an Atheist that can mean a death sentence. In some African countries if the wind changes they can turn on a minority like Atheists and do a lot of damage. That's why i have so much respect for Atheists in those places.

My principle is live and let and live.

I live in a place where each stone you throw without aim will almost every time land on a believer. There is little choice here. As long as they leave me to be, we will have no problem

Suzanna. like our argument with ford humble it reaches a point where even reason and logic does nothing to convince them, they continue to spout there fallacious arguments.
