Christians vs. Atheists: Increasing Hostility

“It’s been an alarming trend with the atheists trying to take religion out of our daily lives,” said Michael Hardee, a Jacksonville resident and Church of God member. “The crosses and the Ten Commandments being taken out of buildings is part of a giant wave watering down our way of life and beliefs.”

But many atheists see it differently, proclaiming instead that it is they who are the targets of rising faith-based hostility.

“It seems there’s been a resurgence of discrimination against people who are non-religious,” said Earl Coggins, a Jacksonville atheist and founder of the First Coast Freethought Society. “This country just seems to be getting to the point where if you’re not religious, you’re a second-class citizen.”

george w bush thinks atheists aren’t citizens at all!
