    It is very clear to many people that some millitant atheists define freedom as all but their agenda. The Freedom from Religion Foundation is an organization formed to eliminate religion and is active whereas the "Freedom from Atheism Foundation" is merely an information page on Facebook. Who is inisiting upon their agenda as "freedom?"

    No Dottie, the goal is to eliminate religious persecution.

    We don't care what you believe, we just don't want you making it the law.

    Huh? Where is this coming from? I never said nor aspired to any such thing. But there are atheists who are actively working to eliminiate/restrict the practice of religion. Do you mind if they are making the law? Seems to be the case. As long as anti-religion people are making the law, that is OK because you don't mention them and their goals at all. BTW, where are the Christians trying make religious laws?

    In what way?

    Of course not. We're the good guys.

    BTW, where are the Christians trying make religious laws?
    Prohibiting abortions, ID in schools, religious tests in employment, just to name a few.
