Absolutely - it’s a religion and so CANNOT be supported by the federal government or established as the de facto state religion under the antiestablishment clause of the first amendement.
Atheism is not no religion. They cannot prove there is no God. They are acting out of faith alone.
They are also wrong, but that’s not the point.
So which is it?
I’ve heard believers repeatedly say that atheism is just as much a belief as religion. Well, then, recognize it as a religion and give its belivers the same privileges as other religions.
Oh, but then believers say it is not a religion. It is non-belief and thus those non-believers should not get the same privileges as believers in religions.
Seems those anti-atheist believers change their story so that they can keep to themselves the privileges such as tax exemptions, days off for their religious holidays, government provided counselors/chaplains.
You are right.
“Atheism is not no religion.”
Grammar aside, I believe a court has said atheism is = to a religion.
You say it is a religion and so CANNOT be supported by the govt., but, what is paying chaplains for our servicemen if not a support by the govt? Thus, nonbelievers should have the same rights for emotional and moral support in war as believers already have. In fact without the comfort of a fully believed in hereafter, it is reasonable to think they might need aid, comfort and counseling even more than believers.
