Trendy topic indeed LOL yes it tends to be here...

Personally, I have not felt discriminated against as an atheist, but here in Australia there are many atheists. And those who are Christian tend to be of a more personal variety... as in, don't go to church, because they don't feel they need to. Many people, Christians, do not like the church and don't think the church has the answers, but they still believe in God.

At least, that has been the experience of many people I know.

I think it has a lot to do with some of the traits of Australian culture... from the convict era we still have a somewhat anti-establishment stance, from England we still do not like making a big scene, including a grand show of religion, (although it's okay for sport or beer, just so long is it is not something serious), and the laid-back trait from who knows where.

Most people here in Oz are aware that being an atheist does not make you evil. Some people here on this forum, however, disagree.

I have a couple of odd occasions when Christians have said or done strange things about atheists, but no fellow country person has ever tried to tell me I'm evil because I'm an atheist.

I am curious if you are writing as an atheist yourself or a theist? I'm sure that will be revealed in time lol. Welcome.

I remembered a local TV show that featured atheism and they asked people on the streets whether atheists are evil or not. All of them said YES.

Yeah, that's how it goes in my country. Not believing in god means evil.

I remember a local TV show that featured Americans and they asked people on the street whether they could remember the month or day of the "nine eleven" attacks. All of them couldn't.

Yeah, that's how it goes when you spend all day interviewing hundreds of people and cherry picking the idiots out for the LOLs.

It's not hard to find idiots in my country. That's why the street is the perfect place to get an interview.

The UK would be similar to Ozz as regards this issue - being an atheist is rarely an issue.
It hasn't always been so - I remember in my younger days getting abuse from people and being considered 'odd' and potentially dangerous by some people.
Obviously things are different in the US (or certainly in parts of it).
