I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
I am not religious....I do not believe in any higher beings whatsoever...I've been labeled an Atheist. Atheism is the lack of religion. It is hard to have a war against NOT believing in something.
There is a stigma certainly, but it is what it is. War? Yeah I don't buy into wars against intangible things
Libertarian and Atheist...wow I'm a hated man.
(Though I had lived in Baton Rouge, LA, for six months, and nobody seemed to be bothered with my atheism there either).
But perhaps we are talking about different "levels" here.
I am an immigrant - a Pole who grew up in Russia; nobody is expecting confessional or parochial loyalties from me. I work hard, I "contribute", I don't litter - I am OK, "accepted".
In a family of devout Southern Baptists, it would not be that simple, would it? Your parents try to convey to you what they hold as their most precious possession - and you tell them that it is entirely meaningless.
Well, it should be a beginning of a long, patient conversation - not a declaration of war.
