Atheists Reach Out -- Just Don't Call It Proselytizing

Late next month, atheists, humanists, freethinkers, secularists -- in short, nonbelievers of every description -- will gather in dozens of cities to mark the holiday they call HumanLight.

Whether by singing from a Humanist Hymnal, decorating a winter wreath or lighting candles dedicated to personal heroes, they'll celebrate what has been an exhilarating ride for the faithless -- a surge in recognition that has many convinced they're on the brink of making a mark on mainstream America.

In what way does a billboard statng "Imagine No Religion" bring forth the response "Why Do Atheists Hate America"?

Fundie (fuzzie) math: Atheists hate God + America is a Christian Nation = Atheists hate America. A monumetally absurd statement, but this is exactly what they believe.

I don't think they actually believe it but more like they say and make up anything to retaliate against atheists.They don't really think they just react with anger they take way too personally. They use the word offended because it works. Look what the word offended does for Muslims. If the christians are offended tough I'm offended and they say tough to me and all atheists they offend. I'm offended when told atheists have no heart or conscious because they don't have god in their heart. I'm offended when told people commit crimes because they don't believe in the punishment of hell then completely ignore what that person is going throug (pain, hurt, etc) and the fact that many people who commit crimes are christian who do think about hell and an afterlife.

They should be offended by their own actions. If they kept their personal beliefs personal and didn't discriminate against everyone else then we wouldn't have to do this. Their actions are the reason for our having to stand up for our rights and non belief.
