My reply to:
Atheists Are the Most Mistrusted Group: They Are Evil and Immoral
Submitted by Robert Tobin on October 24, 2009 - 5:08am. on that Site.
We Australians regard America as a nation with a strange attitude to religion. How come, in many States Evolution is shunned in favour of the teaching of the stupid fables about Creation and that it is true because it is in the Bible and the Bible is the "Word of God" thus being true.

Why is it that Atheists can be hounded out of their homes and towns and denied employment in the Bible Belt States. I have/had a friend in Florida who suffered that discrimination. He did hint that he was considering suicide. I have not heard from him since. Make you conclusions about that.

Why are Americans so gullible. They swallow all the lies preached by those Televangalists and hand out millions of dollars to those crooks. I read that 46% of American Christians believe the Sermon on the Mount was preached by Rev. Billy Graham.

Australians consider Americans as a bit THICK.

UK Atheists wanted.

I'm considering filing a petition to the UK Government website to demand they talking down to us about their "beliefs" - because they are just that. Not supported by evidence.

I need some backup though, but you have to live in the UK or you can't file.

I have been a member of RD.net and the foundation for a few years now, so I felt this an appropriate forum in which to belong. I have read his books and I am reading "The Greatest Show on Earth" at present, but I am one of those that read at every chance and as many books at once, as I CAN.

Thank you Jonathan for posting that. He doesn't seem to answer the question itself, but points up the absurdity of the belief.

Artist crucifies an ape and electrocutes a black Jesus in London:
There's a new cross on display at the old Holy Trinity Church at Marylebone in the heart of London but the figure dangling from it isn't Jesus; it's a gorilla. Actually, it's a sculpture; one of 60 pieces in an exhibit called The Age of the Marvelous. And the church isn't a church either; at least, not any more. Built in 1825, the former Holy Trinity Church is now One Marylebone, a conference center catering to meetings, events and exhibits, large and small.

The very life-like gorilla on a cross was created by artist Paul Fryer with the help of a former Madame Tussauds waxworks expert. The piece is entitled The Privilege of Dominion and is intended to highlight the plight of the Western Lowland Gorilla as well as to challenge the idea that animals have no souls. The artist insists that he didn't intend to offend Christians.

The artist also defended his other work in the exhibit, a Pieta-like sculpture of an electrocuted black Jesus, by saying it was intended it was intended to challenge people's notions of race and religion.

Genovive.... that's the reason gawd invented bookcovers.

If they can't get past the cover there isn't much hope they'll get to the inside.

I wish the cover of Dawkin's new book (in America) was a little different. Firstly, I love his book The god Delusion; I only wish it weren't plastered boldly on the cover of his new book on evolution. I would like to "reach out" to religious people about evolution, but the bold text on this book puts them off. Also, the subtitle should be larger, Evidence for Evolution should be the first thing you see.
