I'm not saying its grounds. I'm saying that if it were to happen, in your case, your personna would probably be the reason behind it.
If you're gonna go round threatenning to shoot people because of nafarious claims that you believe people wanna murder you for being an athiest, you're gonna get yourself in trouble. Nobody wants to hurt you, which you yourself have proven by the fact that no Christian has laid a finger on you, even though you think they're violent.
Either you really believe what you are saying and need mental help, or you need to stop playing these games.

All good socialists have villas in Southern France. That's not the point.
You are at least as likely to be rejected if you put Christian on your resume due to the politically correct notion that somehow, all majorities are inherently racist. If you really think thay you as an atheist are being persecuted, consider that under 2% of the US population consider themselves Atheist, but they have succeeded in removing prayer from public schools, Christmas trees form town greens and the Ten Commandments from the court house.
Muslims 0.8 to 3.5% of the US population, have gotten ritualistic foot washing facilities and time set aside to pray, while Christian children can not hold prayer meetings or Bible studies after or before school hours.
Just who is being persecuted here?
They are IMO a dangerous and powerful group of terrorists. They haven't yet came up on most people's radar because they are not Trotskyites, but they are, and pretty much admit to being, disruptive terrorists if and when the need/opportunity should arise. If you would make a thread on that proposition you would be on much more solid ground.
Polls consistently show that Atheists are the most stigmatized, hated group in this country, with Muslims and homosexuals much more likely to get elected to public offices than open Atheists.So um, where's that evidence that atheist are being persecuted in American society right now? :rolleyes:
Atheists are harassed and theatened with death in some parts of this country. Did you both watching the youtube video that I posted in this thread?
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
But Christians are being more stigmatized every day too. How often have you heard in a conversation "religious fundamentalist," "religious fanatic," "religious nut," "bible thumper," and other such term as insults?
Also, Christianity is being more and more marginalized in this country because of people like you. Richard Dawkins, an avowed atheist, wrote a book calling people that believe in god "delusional."
An atheist, Michael Newdow, is pushing to have Pledge Of Allegiance changed because it has the word "God" in it. Newdow is also pushing to have the words "In God We Trust" removed from our money.
Christians have been under attack by one group or another since the religion began such as the Romans feeding them to the lions. Christians are under attack till this day in other parts of the world such as by Muslims in Muslim countries. No atheists have been feed to the lions by the Romans simply because of their beliefs, and Muslims kill far more Christians than they do atheist.
So stop it already with the "boo-hoo, everyone is out to get me because I’m an atheist." Your much too smart for that. BUT, to answer your question; Yes I saw the video and No I don’t condone such behavior against atheist or anyone for that matter.
Now answer me this question, do you at least agree that Christianity is more threatened and more under attack than atheists? – Yes or No?
