Re: 12 Year Old Atheist in the US Dresses Down Local Government for Mixing Faith and Politics.
Fair go to the young lass. I suppose she will be in for a tough time what with the serenely happy levelling charges that her family have 'corrupted' her and so on. It is a strange society there and I know that in some states atheists have been treated badly in their communities and I also know that there are many atheists who feel they have to keep up a minimal front so their kids don't get taunted in the schoolyard and so on.
I'm not sure I'm comfortable with 12 year olds being put in what can be quite a nasty firing line in the States and I hope she has not been given a script but speaks for herself. If she is speaking for herself and her own thoughts then valete to her.
Think National. Act Local. Oh- and superstition is just the dark matter of human history.
