← So what's the goal with theism?

It is not about converting anyone it is about informing everyone about the truth. Standing by while people rely on faith eventually becomes public policy until someone (many) complains about it.

Religious beliefs and philosophies are imposed by those who govern . Separation of church and state is rarely enforced because the people governing are not secularists they are religious. The pressure from religious lobbyists and their money is hard to turn down when they use words like "Family Values" Who is against that?

The imposition of religious iconography and the acceptance of heavy marketing of god and christ are accepted by the country . Freedom of religion is not freedom from religion. Atheists have no rights get no breaks and get no respect .

How does this not affect those who do not share these beliefs?
