My math may be off (not!) but I don't see how 14 out of 21 is "even worse" when compared to what happened.
    I just meant it was even fishier.

    I thought that atheism wasn't a religion? Not that it matters. You are correct that they can say or do what they want, including nothing. But doing what these 2 people/groups did was obviously them being dicks and anyone, no matter thier personal view regarding atheism/religion, would acknowledge that fact.
    Sure, whatever. Sometimes atheists are dicks, sometimes religious people are dicks.

    So, in your mind its perfectly OK to attack and crowd out someone else's message just because you hate them?
    No, it's not nice. Yes, it's legally okay, but that's not what you're asking. But don't you think it's also dickish to put up your religious display at a public building, as if it were an official one endorsed by the government, and then exclude all others?

    Huh? I didn't say that.

    Other religions may want to set up some kind of symbol. You have to either let them all do it, or none.

    Are college courses in Greek or Norse mythology mocking and belittling?

    Interesting question.

    Is calling it "mythology" belittling to the believers? Would a course in Christian mythology be seen as belittling?

    Further indication that Atheism should be outlawed.

    That's the thing. Since people don't believe in Greek or Norse mythology anymore no one gives it a second thought. But if someone so much as suggests that the popular religions are a myth and people become offended and outraged. That's all that really happened here. They called Christianity a myth. How dare they disagree publicly! Basically, it's offensive to not validate others' belief systems or at least stay silent about dissent with them.

    Many regimes have outlawed religion, it's time we became proactive with these pesky atheists. Professed atheists should be jailed for society's protection, or better yet stripped of their citizenship and sent to China where they work along side other ChiComm atheists for $.75 a day and 2 bowls of rice. Let them experience Maoism and Marxism first hand, let them experience regimes that are hostile to religion.

    America was bulit on the backs of the Religious it's time these atheists shape up or ship out. Get with the program or enjoy your 3 hots and a cot rotting in an 8 x 10 jail cell till you shape up.

    Same with the Communists, outlaw them, much like Germany has outlawed Nazism, we need to be proactive here in America and start getting rid of the rats. Communism and Atheism go hand in hand.

    Oh ok, so you were just joking, I see.

    You had better not be serious.
