What's it like to be an atheist in America?
Advertisements [?]
As long as we're doing this, I might as well bring in the only minority that I'm a part of -- I'll be honest and say that it hasn't adversely affected my life so far, but it is annoying that some states still prohibit atheists from holding public office, and that the major candidates in the last presidential election were Southern Baptists (not that I necessarily have anything against Southern Baptists)
