Cspartz you're right there are plenty of rational non atheists. My point of the question was that will America ever get to the point where atheists not be discriminated against because of their beliefs? Personally as an athiest, I don't think so. People automatically think I’m like Dawkins or Hitchens. But how am I to tolerate their beliefs if the vast majority, and I do mean vast majority, do not tolerate mine. I don’t need acceptance only tolerance. I also will go as far as saying atheists are just as discriminated against as gays.
