    Agreed.

    Just like the pro-lifers are free to buy up ad space on major highways and post pictures of abortions.

    But they're both still a-holes doing something that's in bad taste and just to annoy those they dislike.

But as time marches on, it will become more and more accepted to be atheists and more atheists will be able to publicly claim their atheism with little fear of negative consequences.
    Uh huh. Learn something new everyday I guess. It seems like a lot of drama for no reason.

    And the religious groups who lost their monopoly are free to cry about it as well. It's funny how atheists become the villain when they choose to ask to have the same rights as christians.

    Who here (besides C-21 Cowboy who's posts are just whacked) are saying that free speech does go away or should? No one here is saying that they do not have that right. What we are saying (those of us that are) is that how they have gone about asserting thier right is dickish and is attacking.
