The thing is I think there is so truth to that article, I'm sure there are some people in America who would love to see atheists kicked out of the country. It may not be a majority but there are some like the stuff george bush snr said that *lisasimpson*. Statically, America is a country were the majority believe in God, and I think a large part of that is due to the patriotic 'Civil Religion' instilled in most America's. Whereas in alot of European countries, society has generally become more secular and less and less tend to go to church or even belief in God and the very idea of that is normal in our society. Atleast that's my opinion as a sociology student. Also I agree with what some of the others said if America is free, isn't religious freedom part of that? (even if you don't believe in God?).
