Are you kidding me?
It is almost impossible to get elected to office as an atheist. There is precisely one openly atheist member of congress. There are doubtless more actual atheists, but they can't be open about it without committing career suicide.
Atheist kids are bullied and their families are hounded to move out of town.
Once again you're speaking on a subject you don't know a thing about. Here's a study showing that atheists are trusted to the same extent as rapists in the USA.http://digitaljournal.com/article/315425
Here's a 20/20 segment on atheist persecution.
Now watch this clip where Steve Harvey basically states that atheists are immoral.
That is a mainstream
talkshow hosted by Tyra Banks.
No one batted an eyelid. In his bigoted statement, replace atheist with "black", "Jewish", "gay", or really any minority you can think of. Can you imagine the outrage there would be?
One day you'll learn to keep your mouth shut until you've done some research.
One day you need to look up persecution in the dictionary.
The persecution of Christians in the 10/40 Window has increased by 400 percent over the last 10 years
"Americans who have not experienced persecution do not fully understand what it means to have their lives threatened, homes destroyed, rights violated and loved ones imprisoned, all because of embracing faith in Jesus Christ," said K. P. Yohannan, GFA founder and president, in a statement. "In the 14 countries we serve, persecution of this sort has become a normal way of life, especially for those directly involved in mission work."
The 10/40 Window is a section of the world – between 10 and 40 degrees north of the equator – that encompasses those nations that have been least reached with the Gospel message. These nations include China, India, Iraq, Iran, Egypt, Sudan and Nigeria, just to name a few.
