    They are vilified, marginalized even hated.
    One does tend to get tired of the treatment.
    Only since the internet can atheists find each other without the exposure to ridicule. We are finding there are more of us out there than thought possible.
    How does anybody know an atheist is an atheist?

To me, Christian or not, it is small minded, petty little people at the forefront of these debates.
    I don't really agree. I don't see any how the Ten Commandments had any significant to western civilization.

    1). No other gods.
    2). No idols
    3). Don't blaspheme
    4). Remember the Sabbath
    5). Honor your parents
    6). Don't murder
    7). Don't cheat on your spouse
    8). Don't steal
    9). Don't purger
    10). Don't lust

    How do they relate to western civilization? The first three are in violation of the 1st Amendment. Four five and ten are ignored and seven is a civil matter.

    That leaves you with three: don't murder, steal, or lie under oath. These are laws in every civilization that has ever lived; including every civilization we know of that predates the Ten Commandments.

    So you really can't trace back any western laws or legal structure to the Ten Commandments. If you want to display something significant, use Hammurabi's Code.

    Or this as it predates Hammurabi Code of Ur-Nammu - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    My point is that how can somebody be discriminated against if nobody knows they are an atheist?

    I spent alot of time organizing events heavily connected with "alternative" living communities. So likely more than your average person. One festival I would work at had a group of about 20-30 that would come every year

    So atheists are to blame for their discrimination because they speak out about their lack of belief?

    If you are out there throwing what you are in other peoples faces, of any religion or anything else, some people are going to comment on it.
