Yes, American Atheists must represent all atheists in America, because of their name, right? About 2500 American Atheists versus about 6 million atheists in America. This case was decided rightly in my opinion and it's poor judgement like this that keeps AA from getting even 1% of the country's atheists as members.
I don't feel slapped around, particularly since I agree with the ruling, and I don't believe in nothing. It's an odd thought process that concludes that if a person doesn't believe in one thing, they don't believe in anything.
I'm an atheist, not a Democrat. I do what I do because of the things I DO believe in, not the things I don't. Are you familiar with the fallacy 'argument ad baculum'?
Never voted for the man.
Stalin, Lenin, and Mao were monsters in human form, I wish I could distance myself from being the same species as them. Why would you suppose an atheist not criticize them, unless that atheist was a communist (and maybe even then)?
Muslims are atheists, up is down, left is right, can't argue with logic like that.
Exactly! They can't even get 1% of the atheists in this country to join their organization because of stunts like this.
Perhaps the 0.04% of American atheists who are actually members of American Atheists are (about 2500 AA members vs. about 6 million atheists in America) rage monsters. Personally, I wish they would choose their battles more wisely. I don't think we need an atheist equivalent of litigous Black Panthers in order to secure equal treatment under the law in this great country.
It's not meaningless to Christians. If it was meaningless, there couldn't be a church state issue, and there would be no question of whether having it in this museum favors one religion unduly.
It's a curious fantasy about what other people might be doing, yes. Someone who swears at God would probably be a maltheist, someone who believes God is real but doesn't think God is good. As opposed to the kind of swear an atheist might make when she accidentally hits her thumb with a hammer, which tends to be whatever swears are their habit.
Hm. Nobody gets to sue the government unless they can afford to take on the US government and lose. That sounds like one of those things where the law of unintended consequences would bite us very hard.
