discrimination against atheists

this video got me steaming mad. hellloooo! freedom of religion? freedom of speech? seperation of church and state? particularly the statement "this is a christian country". watch the vid...

how can a country be christian? the populus may be overwhelmingly christian, but the "country", the state is supposed to be secular, and the notion of freedom of religious practice, or the lack thereof, is supposed to be one of the countrys founding principles. how is it that these two women arent able to recognize that?

oh, and this is the first part of the story preempting this "discussion"- a piece about a family in mississippi that had been kicked out of their house and ostracized from their community because of their beliefs.
