Atheists cry a river
The International Humanist and Ethical Union has completed a study suggesting atheists and non-believers suffer greatly in this present darkness. I have no doubt they are persecuted. Just like many of the countries mentioned that will persecute atheists will persecute religious believers of other traditions. Oh yeah. The study doesn't seem to mention that. Likewise absent is the country with the largest population of atheists in the world: China. Some atheists, who are often quick to absorb any manner of non-traditional belief system into the fold of 'atheism', suddenly point out that many Chinese are actually agnostic, and that only the government officially endorses atheism. Whatever difference it makes to those persecuted because of their religious beliefs, I don't know. All in all, the typical word drool of modern atheism, where nothing is real, and no facts are worth getting hung about. For a perspective of sweat and innocent atheists who only want to give peace a chance, Mark Shea has an amusing - and quite accurate - rebuttal.
