In America, atheists are still in the closet

So do many other interest and identity groups. Complaint is our political lingua franca: it's what Occupiers, Tea Partiers, Wall Street titans, religious and irreligious people share.

Second, The Speration Of Church And State Was Put Into Place To Protect Religion From Government....Nothing Else.
And, The Reason The Christian Religion Was Not Considered The National Religion, Was To Allow All Religions To Worship Freely In America...Atheism Was Not Even A Bump In The Road.
Ridiculous statement, considering that most of the Founders were students of history, and the 30 Years War was fairly recent history to them (about like the Civil War is for us...that is, we still get in arguments over it).

The 30 Years War was largely due to religious influence on government and it devastated central Europe. So, yes, the Founders were very interested in keeping religion out of government (as well as keeping government out of religion). BTW, there are some place, such as Northern Ireland, where they STILL are fighting that battle 350 years later.

Your statement is the type of ignorance that perpetuates with fundamentalists...thinking reality somehow conforms to what you wish was true.

You should be thankful that religion IS kept out of our government, because the odds of YOUR religion being the one in power is very small. Then YOU would be the heretic and the one being discriminated against.

Better for all to have it the way it is...no government in religion AND no religion in government.
