Atheism, two views

“I have something to say to the religionist who feels atheists never say anything positive: You are an intelligent human being. Your life is valuable for its own sake. You are not second-class in the universe, deriving meaning and purpose from some other mind. You are not inherently evil — you are inherently human, possessing the positive rational potential to help make this a world of morality, peace and joy. Trust yourself.” -Dan Barker

No, I don’t know that Atheists should be considered as citizens, nor should they be considered as patriots. This is one nation under God.”  –George H. W. Bush

So Atheists are the bitter, angry, intolerant ones, right?

    Hey, so does that mean if there was a draft, you could say you were an atheist and they’d say you didn’t have to serve? Seeing as how you’re not considered a patriot or a citizen.
