Atheists ARE persecuted in the USA


Atheists in the US are not just misunderstood and disliked, but also actively discriminated against, no less than by the judges ruling in custody cases. You can read the whole study (PDF) here on 70 recent cases (only those that were appealed, thus probably just a drop in the bucket) in which an atheist parent lost custody or was instructed by the court to provide "... a plan to the Court of how [he] is going to commence providing some sort of spiritual opportunity for the [children] to learn about God while in [his] custody....."!!!!!!!!!
