The word prejudice keeps popping up in my mind. At first the word itself has very negative connotation associated with treating people unfairly. How does it apply to atheist being prejudice to its nonbelief over believers? Is it appropriate to call ourselves prejudice in our views? Here is a definition for prejudice :
any preconceived opinion or feeling, either favorable or unfavorable. I definitely think that I have a prejudice for atheistic views as in I prefer the logic of its belief. However I do not want anyone to suffer because of my views. I prefer to believe that we can exist peacefully with many views. Obtaining a government that is fair to all is desirable but is it possible? In government we project our money to causes of the common good. The peoples description of common good is different for everyone. Laws developed to nuture the common good is not always desired by all. Is it still okay to be a "prejudice atheist"?

Truth among the crazies? As a person who does not want war or insanity it boggles my mind.
