    Nay. If there was one it would soon be over at our demise for we are a minority in the world sadly.

    I'm an atheist, but even I can see that religion is under attack. I don't approve, but there aren't enough people fighting religion for their movement to have a serious impact.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    In the US? No. There is no war on atheism. There is no war on Christmas. Is there prejudice against atheists? Sure. In some places in the States it is fairly rampant. In other places it isn’t given a second thought. But I wouldn’t call it a war, even in a metaphorical sense.

    However, outside of the US? I am currently living in a country where people are rotting away in prison for being atheists. It is actually a fairly tolerant country when it comes to religions. Christian AND Muslim holidays are celebrated equally and recognized as government holidays. But if you publically espouse being an atheist you risk being dragged away from your home and being thrown in jail. Is there a “war” on atheism here? Definitely.

    No, and can you please fix up the threadname, it's seriously confusing.

    Re: Th War On War On Atheism

    As an atheist, no, I don't think so. Atheists do not have equal rights in certain facets of life, for example the BSA policy, and are sometimes greatly annoyed by imbecilic comments by even public officials that this is a christian country. However, I don't fear being hunted down and I certainly don't shy away from stating my views when the topic comes up. If it was serious persecution, I would be hiding behind multiple proxies at the least before posting this.
