"If I take death into my life, acknowledge it, and face it squarely, I will free myself from the anxiety of death and the pettiness of life - and only then will I be free to become myself." ~ Martin Heidegger
I don't think there is a war on atheism in America and I don't think there is a war on atheism in Europe either. Unfortunately that's as far as my personal experience scope reaches too.
I think that less people are going to church in America so a lot of people in the older generations tend to have a view that America is losing faith in God all together, but I just think that more people are spending their Sundays at home and not in church. Some people think this is bad, and if you are Pat Buchanan you think that less people in church means America is going to burn in the fiery pits of hell.
I'm of the opinion that there isn't a war on any religion or atheism (unless you believe that certain people in America are waging a war against the Muslims and vice-versa) (Although I think it's more westernization that Christianity). I just think people are bewildered by change, and a more vocal group of atheists are more prominent today.
"God is the name by which I designate all things which cross my path violently and recklessly, all things which alter my plans and intentions, and change the course of my life, for better or for worse."
-C G Jung
Scout Oath (or Promise)
On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.
Been there since 1911 roughly 11 months after it incorporated.

Safe to say the org was founded with faith in mind.
but they'll gladly let you buy their overpriced popcorn....
A war on Athiesm? No, they are the ones who are declaring war on God by trying to convince the world He doesn't exist.
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
