Why don't athiests ever take on Islam, a violent and backwards religion that gave the world Sharia Law and seeks to kill or convert all non-Muslims, but instead focus their hatred on Christianity, which gave us America, the Constitution, and the DOI?

    It seems as though the person asking this question, and all the people who've answered it denigrating atheism, have absolutely no concept of just what atheism actually is. It isn't cowardice, as one does not need to be a coward, to NOT believe something. It isn't hatred of religious people, except for those who would insist we believe in their god, and some undefined "plan" for humanity, that they and their fellows have interpreted as being somehow divine. It isn't even hatred of god, for you cannot hate something you do not believe exists. Atheism is, simply put, a difference of opinion.

    You are the type of person atheists dislike, what with your meaningless rhetoric and presupposition of the mind set of others. Atheism, agnosticism, whatever you want to call it, doesn't mean diddly to me, as I simply have no belief in magical, mystical beings, nor do I care about such things, other than how the beliefs of other people will ultimately affect my life, and the lives of those I care about. Historically, nonsensical beliefs forced upon a populace, end up affecting certain individuals, and society as a whole, negatively.

    If I'm completely honest, I think it's because American Athiests are ridiculed and slandered by American Christians throughout their entire lives, whereas American Athiests have very little negative personal contact with Muslims, and none at all with those who believe in Sharia Law. It is natural to focus your bitterness on the religion that hurt you, rather then one that seems far away.

    Because they think that Faiths (regardless of the singular Truth) all start after you die . And so since they don't think that there is a G_D , why care about anything else but right now ?

    The other faiths that they could go after are false , so Satan isn't going to direct them towards what is already a deception .

    Because they are cowards. It is easy to be anti-Christian (or anti-Jewish) - they would not be killed, stoned, hanged. Worst case we will call them "extremists" or atheists. They would not like fatwa they their life is forfeit for denouncing Mohamed

    Because the world hates Jesus Christ as God's Son and the ONLY Way to God.

    Jesus said,
    Joh 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

    No worse than the OT. And the NT is not the word of god. And the Koran is a fraud. And the Dante's Inferno was a story and there are no unicorns. It is all a waste of time to get anything other than literary enjoyment out of.

    We do whenever the opportunity arises, but Muslims tend to be among the most evidence proof of all theists. They are right up there with young-earth creationist Christians in ignoring all evidence that contradicts their beliefs, no matter how compelling that evidence might be.

    To be clear, I don't hate any religion, certainly not Christianity. Bur I do tire of hearing Christians lie about the Constitution being founded on their religion. It was not. A large number of the founders were Deists, including Thomas Jefferson, the promary author of the Declaration of Independence. The Founders were influenced by ideas of Christian morality, but they were determined to create a secular state in which all religions would be respected and none would be the state religion.

    It is no exaggeration to say that on Sundays in Washington during the administrations of Thomas Jefferson (1801-1809) and of James Madison (1809-1817) the state became the church. Within a year of his inauguration, Jefferson began attending church services in the House of Representatives. Madison followed Jefferson's example, although unlike Jefferson, who rode on horseback to church in the Capitol, Madison came in a coach and four. Worship services in the House--a practice that continued until after the Civil War--were acceptable to Jefferson because they were nondiscriminatory and voluntary. Preachers of every Protestant denomination appeared. (Catholic priests began officiating in 1826.) As early as January 1806 a female evangelist, Dorothy Ripley, delivered a camp meeting-style exhortation in the House to Jefferson, Vice President Aaron Burr, and a "crowded audience." Throughout his administration Jefferson permitted church services in executive branch buildings. The Gospel was also preached in the Supreme Court chambers.

    Jefferson's actions may seem surprising because his attitude toward the relation between religion and government is usually thought to have been embodied in his recommendation that there exist "a wall of separation between church and state." In that statement, Jefferson was apparently declaring his opposition, as Madison had done in introducing the Bill of Rights, to a "national" religion. In attending church services on public property, Jefferson and Madison consciously and deliberately were offering symbolic support to religion as a prop for republican government.

    Very interesting. Thanks for pointing that out. Knowing Jefferson's feelings about deism, I have to wonder whether he did that out of a sudden surge of faith or political expediency. I suppose that may be a secret locked in the past.

    In either case, I was referring to what the Founders said in the COnstitution. Not only did they prohibit the establishment of a state sanctioned religious sect, they also prohibited any form of religious test as a requirement for service in public office. If they had truly meant to establish the USA as a Christian nation, one would think the word Christian would show up somewhere in the Constitution. It does not.

    You seem to want to make atheism an anti-Christian thing. It's an pro-reason and volition thing. That would include all of the fairy tales people have followed since the beginning. With that said, Muslims don't show up at your door trying to "win your soul" on a Saturday afternoon.

    Since I grew up in a fundamental, independent Baptist household/church, I know exactly what they are doing. The practice is called "soul-winning" or "witnessing". It's pervasive to people's privacy. It annoys people.

    Damn right I'm prideful. I've accomplished a damn good life for myself. I'm entitled to that. So I guess I'll revel in my sin...lol.
