Just FYI: I don't know anyone who wants America to be an atheist country. We want it to be a free country. You're free to be a Christian, I'm free to be an atheist, other people are free to be Muslims, Jews, Hindu's, Scientologies, or whatever. "We" don't have to be anything but free. We're each free to pick what we are, beyond that.
It's the conservatives who have this collective mind that "we" need to be a Christian country, so they try to force Christianity through the law . . . for example school prayers and gay marriages. They're always trying to use the government to promote "family" (redefined to mean fundamentalist Christian) "values" (redefined to mean religious law). I just want them to go live by their religion and let me live by mine. "We" don't need to have a set of values defined for us by the government. "You" need "yours", and "I" need "mine" -- so long as they don't infringe on one another.
With abortion, that is a little sticky. Fundi's don't want to pay for it. But, at the same time, a lot of us didn't want to pay for the Iraq War -- and for a lot of people including Quakers, Muslims and a lot of Christians, that was a violation of religious law. Sadly, we can't opt-out of that.
Anyway, all we want is freedom. We don't want to force anyone else to be atheist. We just want conservative Christians to stop their Jihad on the Constitution and learn that the Congress isn't a house of worship and we're not a theocracy.
"All that stuff I was taught about evolution, embryology, Big Bang theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of hell [the bible] teaches us how to run all our public policy and everything in society." Rep. Paul Broun (R)
"I hope I live to see the day when, as in the early days of our country, we won't have any public schools. The churches will have taken them over again and Christians will be running them. What a happy day that will be!" -- Jerry Falwell
