Atheist grmaoups are attempting to put pressure to stop all references to God in Barack Obama’s inauguration. You can read the story here. As I have said previously, I just do not get this. When I was an atheist, it never bothered me when God was mentioned in public settings. I disagreed with the people but I was not offended. These atheists feel that mention of God violates their freedom of religion. But again, it does not bother me when other religions are mention, even if I disagree with them. When they had the American memorial service after the September 11 attack, Jewish and Muslim clergy were involved. I was not offended, in fact I thought it was a powerful statement of how people can unite in the face of terror. I think certain atheists need to stop taking themselves so seriously.
