Two years after losing relatives and property to anti-Christian violence, survivors in India's Orissa state are still being pressured to "return" to Hinduism, according to a private investigation.
According to the preliminary report of a fact-finding team, "Despite the state administration’s claim of normalcy, a state of lawlessness and utter fear and sense of insecurity" is prevalent among the Christians in Kandhamal district who experienced anti-Christian violence in 2008.

Just because courts declare something true doesn't always make that something valid.
Atheism is a religion as much as Islam is a race.
Besides, to declare atheism non-violent is pure ignorance. The number of people killed in the name of "Atheism" is staggering. The Inquisition would seem as a "peaceful" movement when compared to the atrocities committed by supporters of atheism.
And furthermore, Capitalism and Democracy aren't a religion neither.

In comparison, Christianity and Islam are the "peaceful" religions.
I am well aware of Atheists causing millions of deaths of their own, predominantly the Atheist USSR.
The above being said, Capitalism and Democracy is not a religion, but is an idea, just like religion.
All ideas can be used for violence, d1ck heads can claim to be adherents of what ever religion they, but when they bring their d1ck head friends in the equation, it just makes the whole idea smelly, at least to the ignorant.

I beg to differ that religion is an idea. Religion is a commandment from God to worship Him. Capitalism and Democracy aren't commandments.
