Default Imagine living in a society of Santa Clausians, what it feels like to be Atheist

http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2005/11/15/12016/649

The above is a great article.

Not sure what to say about it, but for anyone reading the board as a guest or stumbling across it in searches, I really recommend you read it. It's hard to explain to theists what the depth of pressure that is felt with atheists living in societies of religious dominance, and maybe the above can help you in some way see why many atheists act the way they do, whether that be silence and hiding in the midst of a world of fanaticism, speaking up with coherent arguments, or being emotional and just letting rip.

It's a world of oppression and madness, and I hope you read it and see something of what it's like for us, even if you are a 'god believer'.
