Why are unbelievers so dumb they can't understand the first amendment. There is no freedom from religion mentioned at all?

Courts have upheld the idea that freedom of religion includes the right not to practice a religion over and over again.
I know how much Christians hate freedom, but many of us value it. If you hate freedom so much, perhaps you should move to a country that doesn't have religious freedom.

Then why do Christians keep say Atheism is a religion ?

If you are Protestant and were made to say a Catholic prayer before City Hall meetings, you'll quickly understand "freedom FROM" necessarily comes from "freedom OF" which necessarily comes from "separation of church and state" which necessarily comes from "Congress shall make no law..."
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.Source(s): Why international atheists would be required to know this is beyond me.

The bible is a 1-way-ticket
which demands that you believe what it says.
On the other hand, the First Amendment
allows for healthy debate as to what a flaming
piece of crap the bible & its contents happen to be.
If you can't debate the parables
and settle on a far firmer set of beliefs
on your own, that is no one else's problem at all.

There is no "freedom of religion"
Both freedom of religion
and freedom from religion
are unavoidable consequences
of what it does say.
"Congress shall make no law
respecting an establishment of religion,
or prohibiting the free exercise thereof"
The "shall make no law
respecting an establishment of religion"
part means that the government
that you have to be religious,
in any way.
So that results in freedom from religion.

The "establishment of religion" clause of the First Amendment means at least this: Neither a state nor the Federal Government can set up a church. Neither can pass laws which aid one religion, aid all religions, or prefer one religion to another ... in the words of Jefferson, the [First Amendment] clause against establishment of religion by law...you are smart enough to know about Jefferson or in my dumbness I can be mistaken about that or your reading abilities?

This unbeliever doesn't care what your 'Amendment' says, as we don't have any of those in the UK. But perhaps you're not educated enough to know that even if atheism wasn't 'allowed' in the USA, millions would still BE atheists - they just wouldn't be allowed to say so.

And it's idiots who talk like you who are the reason the Supreme Court had to declare atheism a religion, just so atheists could be protected.

We all have rights.Atheists have separation of church and state.Yet the line is blurred and the horizon is black.Our form of government cannot stand. Simple logic a house divided against itself cannot stand.Soon here as in western Europe will be lead astray by mankind's final form of government for what's left of the free world will be theocratic. In that day those left behind along with the Atheists will have a common enemy that church in Rome. JESUS BLESS YOU

But there is no mention that America is a Christian country, yet so many Christians claim that it is.
