Dear Brian,

It's a shame that ignorance and intolerance about atheism is so widespread. Talk about prejudice. If you accept on blind faith that every person who believes in God is a good person who does wonderful charitable works in the world and is a living embodiment of New Testament principles, you'd be in for a heck of a shock.

At the same time, folks who assume that atheists are all nihilistic amoral unethical psychopaths are missing out on a lot of really cool people.

Too bad belief in God is such a divisive issue in today's America. As I see it, it's an irrelevant distraction - an illusion of separation that is just one more polarizing force we don't need in this country.
