I am and have always been an atheist and I find American claims of persecution baseless and historically out of context.I am and have always been an atheist and I find the "Attack Proselytizing" of "god-fearing good folk" to be offensive.

Yes it isn't legal to ask but has never been much of an obstacle for this sort of discrimination.
We (atheists) have freedom of speech and religious choice in this country, same as theists. Their right to shove their beliefs in our faces must be balanced by our right to remind them that their "moral superiority" has authorized millions of deaths and calls for the deaths of billions more.
