10. Not saying any of that. Merely asking whether someone who expects theists to

just keep it to themselves would expect the same thing from non-theists.

There is no question that there is christian domination in this country, but we have freedom of religion and there is no expectation that anyone needs to keep their religion or lack of religion to themselves. Keep it out of the laws, yes. Keep it out of the culture, no.

Barely allowed to exist? A bit of hyperbole, don't you think?

I agree that no one should force their beliefs or lack of beliefs on anyone else. I do not agree that they should keep it to themselves. In particular, I think the growing trend for atheists to be more vocal and visible is a good thing and will advance the cause of greater understanding and acceptance.
