Your own? that would indicate that you have the right and power to decide what is right for everyone.

I'm not an atheist, but as I recover from 30+ years of living in a Christian environment and 13+ years of being a Christian, I can't deny that I may one day end up as one. That said, I have to disagree with the point about not hating Christianity. As an ex-Christian I constantly find myself battling with a Christian mentality, doing things because that's what Christian programming dictates, and fighting with Christian assumptions while thinking about my spirituality from a post-Christian view. This struggle to let go of that brainwashing pisses me off. Do I hate Christians? No. Do I hate Christianity...perhaps hate is too strong a word, but I would say that, at the very least, I look upon it with significant contempt.

Atheists are discriminated against more than people know. But the problem is that we're like homosexuals used to be, heavily closeted. Most people don't know I'm an atheist because I can't let some of them know because it could ruin my life.
