I'm an atheist living in Canada and I've also lived in Britain. The only time I have ever experienced intolerance is here on cafemom.

I am atheist. I think what ever path makes you happy is great. Towards me I have had people threaten to call dpsand I have been physically assaulted due to lack of faith. I am sure it was those people though and would not hold it against others because they share a faith with them. Acting like it does not happen though can lead to more people getting bullied over it.

For me, I really don't have a problem with organized religion, or religion in general, when it is understood that these are personal beliefs, and not necessarily shared with every member of our society. My issues are when people try to impress their beliefs on me or on others, and especially when those beliefs are insinuated into areas where they do not belong--like public policy and public schools. I would no more want to see a Christian being attacked for choosing his/her path of worship than I would want to see a Muslim, a Jew, a Pagan, or anyone else attacked for their beliefs. Places of worship need to be left alone, whether they are chapels, churches, mosques, temples or any other. Again, my only problem with religion comes when someone tries to push his or her beliefs on others.
