How about instead of collecting money for ridiculous and unwarranted monuments they attempt to feed and clothe needy people. Then maybe people would think they had something to offer besides a loud mouth and a lot of opinions.
Since 1963, American Atheists has been taking the principled and uncompromising position that our government should give no special treatment or preference to religious belief. Through lawsuits, innovative public relations campaigns, and education, we are working to normalize atheism and allow more and more people to set aside religious belief and superstition.
It's a conspiracy I tell you! It's a conspiracy to shame and to silence ATS atheists and ATS pro-atheist posts and threads!

Well with the sheer amount of religious people in America your going to have to understand the majority of people are going to be coming to ATS for biblical bull****.
You have to expect a "for profit" site like ATS to cater to the religious idiots because its best for their bank accounts. The same goes for nut jobs of all shapes and sizes.
If ATS was truly about Denying Ignorance they wouldn't have a conspiracy website for long.edit on 10-6-2013 by Wertdagf because: (no reason given)

It has already been stated that OP could have participated in the show and had his view represented. His view was also represented in the thread that was mentioned on the show. I don't see how much more "fair" to OP they could have been aside from flat out agreeing with them. The mods are allowed to have opinions which is essentially what drives the show. If someone wants to be immersed in the conversation they can go to the thread which was highlighted in the show. If you look at the threads OP starts they usually begin similar to this one (being outraged because there are religious people in the world that don't hide their views) and then morph into anti christian arguments.
Here is a rather humanist idea that the atheist group mentioned should apply. How about instead of collecting money for ridiculous and unwarranted monuments they attempt to feed and clothe needy people. Then maybe people would think they had something to offer besides a loud mouth and a lot of opinions.
"These atheists" are not trying to convert the whole world to atheism.
I honestly do not care what people believe as far as faith but I do take offense when the wall of separation has been violated.
I think it was the interview they did with a guy who was claiming there were feral nomadic human tribes living in the American forests that was the last straw for me. The evidence he presented was extremely weak but the ATS presenter (i think Nef) was all over it like it was gospel.

But in this case, the ATS Live commenters -- ALL OF THEM -- failed to address the basis of this thread, which is that an atheist group wanted a Judeo-Christian monument to the 10 Commandments, posted in front of a court house, removed, and that the judge settled the case by saying the Atheists could put up their own monument in the same general vicinity (I don't know if it was across the street or on the other side of the sidewalk).
This seems like a fairly reasonable move, but the ATS Live crew didn't discuss this particular issue, but rather just told Atheists to go away and some -- Like Garth/Sempor Fortis -- made the extremely false claim that Atheists as a group want to convert all others to their ideology and do away with religions. Thus they were just spouting their tired, biased, bigoted remarks and failed to discuss the issue fairly.
I am sorry Windword,but I don't know about such subject.
