How do you equate this with persecuting Christians?
No where in the article is it about persecuting religion let alone is it about Christians.
Seriously a group wants a political voice that isn't tied to religion and you cry fowl that Christians are being persecuted. The persecution complex.
Or did you actually mean prosecute? That would make less sense.
Perhaps I misspelled prosecute? But is that all you got in relevance to my comparison to religious "PROSECUTION" versus the "SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE"???????
I guess to put it into a language that you might understand, "Why don't you go after the government whom is using one religion over another, OR a religion whom believes in "NOTHING" (you know, Atheists? Whom believe in nothing?).............................Atheists are not much more different than Muslims whom believe in "DEATH TO THE INFEDELS".........right? After all, you guys are special????
Fact remains that Atheists are nothing more than another tribe whom is jumping into the fray of political nonsense to make themselves feel MORE SPECIAL than anyone else, just because they are "DIFFERENT"?????
Answer me this???? "When the F#%$ is this kind of childish nonsense going to end?"!!!!!!!
But hey, no worries, I am not afraid of death! I actually welcome it! Because I will finally be free of the like of you and others whom feel that they are "SO SPECIAL, THAT EVERYONE ELSE DESERVES TO SUFFER!"
Good luck to you and your cause!!!

I have no idea but I am sure there are probably a few that have been duped. It is California after all. I like it because there is a choice now and my hopes are that they will stand against some of those who are the anti-science crowd. The ones who have publicly expressed that evolution and climate change are lies from the pit of hell or the earth is only 9,000 years old but also sits on the science and technology board in congress. Maybe they can get some laws changed like the ones I listed.
It’s just having a voice more in line with what I think.
Maybe down the line an uncloseted Atheist will be able to run for office against that type but I don’t think that will happen soon.
Personally I don’t really care what people believe until their beliefs affect me. There are those out there that reject science because it conflicts with what their religion says. I don’t think those types are the majority in government but I do think they wield more influence than they should. My hope is that this is a step in finding better candidates for those positions.
Weather those replacements have a faith or not matters very little to me whether they are intelligent enough to realize the realities of science matters greatly though.
Before issuing an endorsement, the Freethought Equality Fund PAC will question candidates about their personal and political views on issues where religious belief could influence public policy.
I'm pretty sure we have this in America already already; it's called "asking the candidate what their positions on the issues are."
