Pains me? So what if christianity is important to you, it still doesn't explain the obsession and wanting it in every area of peoples lives, business and politics. If people want atheists to keep quiet about atheism then they should keep quiet about their christianity.
I do not want you to keep quiet about Atheism. I agree that if someone wants you to be quiet, the fair thing would be for them to also remain quiet.
I was kidding about the pains you thing. You'd think I'd know by now who I can kid around with and who I cannot. I mean that you keep arguing a point we've already agreed on.
Please explain how Christians want it (and what is 'it'?) in every area of peoples' lives, business and politics. If you mean simply being who we are, voicing our opinions, using legal means to defend what we feel is right for America, voting for whoever we feel is the best candidate for office, promoting said candidate, etc., there's no way to change that, and to do so seems criminal.
