Following up on the previous posting about the Obama administration agreeing to meet with representatives of the Secular Coalition of America, the Christians have predictably freaked out. This is in spite of the fact that the president won't actually be there and no initiatives are expected to result. The take-home lesson here is that according to the more vocal Christian community, nonreligious people have no right to voice their concerns to their own elected officials.
It is sometimes argued the new atheism is hostile and belligerent. Take heed of this, our very existence is an affront to the faithful regardless of how we express ourselves. We will never win the "respect our beliefs" argument because to them respecting their religion means sitting quietly so the theocracy can parade in undisturbed.
