Editor,

In 1963, a woman named Madalyn Murray O'Hair founded a non-profit group called American Atheists. In 1976, the year of the 200th birthday of the United States, a liberal feminist named Annie Laurie Gaylor, along with her mother, founded another non-profit group very similar to American Atheists called the Freedom From Religion Foundation, (FFRF).

Over time, the AA and the FFRF, under both O'Hair's and Gaylor's radical leaderships, began illegally interfering in schools and local and state governments of America trying to force them to remove anything religious on their property through threats of lawsuits. Both the AA and FFRF, today, are still pursuing these similar actions.

In their eyes, their "reason" for doing this is because these themes being portrayed on public property are a so-called violation of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which states: "Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of a religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof." To the AA and FFRF, this phrase literally means separation of church and state, even though the words "Separation of Church and State" are nowhere found anywhere in the Constitution.

After all the threatening actions that have been done by the AA and the FFRF against schools and governments, there's only one way to best describe these two liberal atheist organizations: they are hate groups. If they weren't hate groups, they wouldn't be bashing or criticizing Americans just because they have religious backgrounds and trying to force their secular views on them or on schools or on governments.

Truth be known, the only reason the FFRF and AA want complete and total separation of church and state is because they hate religions and want them outlawed in the United States and the rest of the world.

And why do these two liberal groups hate religions so much? Well, in their own perspective, they claim that religions are responsible for all the wars and conflicts in world history. These include the Crusades, the Inquisition, and the Salem witch hunts. While this is all true and indeed accurate, it is still ignorant of the liberal atheists to be putting the blame on religions for all the problems in America and in the world today. They need to understand that religions are absolutely nothing like they were thousands of years ago. Religious people, a very large majority of them, are peaceful, and even they condemn the old crusades, inquisition, and witch hunts. Bottom line: the majority of religions have changed virtuously.

To the point of all this, I believe that it's time for the American Atheists and the Freedom From Religion Foundation to stop their intolerant and prejudiced actions against religions and to leave innocent religious people alone. It's time for them to stop living in the dark past of the crusades and witch hunts and start moving on and living in the moment. It's time for them to stop forcing their secular atheistic views on schools, people, and the local, state and federal governments.

And most of all, it's time for the American people to start standing up for religious freedom and liberty and to start standing up against these two hateful liberal atheist groups and end their prejudices against religions once and for all.

God Bless America, always and forever.
