I have seen on this board, numerous times, accusations that there is an anti-Christian conspiracy, and that Christians are persecuted and
discriminated against in this country. I have always thought to the contrary, considering the number of Christians vs. the numbers of members of other
religions and non religions.
Christians have not been persecuted since Rome.
I do, however, have evidence that there may be an anti-atheist conspiracy, which goes contrary to our federal Constitution, namely that in seven
states of the US, the state constitutions prohibit atheists from holding public office.
These states are:
There is not a single state in the US that prohibits Christians from holding office.
My question is this: why claim to be discriminated against, when in fact, those that make the claim are doing the discrimination?
Why is it so hard to accept that atheists can be upstanding and ethical without needing a god?
What if these state constitutions disallowed a race of people to be barred from office? Would that make a difference to anyone's point of view?
