The Religion Of Atheism: Just one more little small dinky religion (call it “set of beliefs” if you want to, I call it a religion) in America that wants their little corner to have their say about their religious beliefs to all who will listen. How is that essentially different from what John Travolta and Tom Cruise has to say on Oprah? Yawn.
Here is an interesting tidbit:

“An atheist believes that a hospital should be built instead of a church.”__Madalyn Murray
Christendom believes BOTH should be built and Christendom is doing quite well on building churches and hospitals.
Btw, America is on track to have over 100,000,000 Hispanics in the country by 2050 and the vast majority of them are Roman Catholic Christians … LOL … Christendom in America has nothing to fear from the American Atheists Association, or Tom Cruise or John Travolta or Hare Krishna:
The largest religion in the US is Christianity, claimed by the majority of the population (76% in 2008).
From those queried, roughly 51% of Americans are Protestants, 24% are Catholics, 1.7% are Mormons (the name commonly used to refer to members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints), and 1.7% have affiliations with various other Christian denominations.
Christianity was introduced during the period of European colonization.
According to the 2012 Yearbook of American and Canadian Churches, from which members in the United States are combined with Canadian members, and of the National Council of Churches, the five largest denominations are:
The Catholic Church, 68,202,492 members
The Southern Baptist Convention, 16,136,044 members
The United Methodist Church, 7,679,850 members
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 6,157,238 members
The Church of God in Christ, 5,499,875 members
The Southern Baptist Convention, with over 16 million adherents, is the largest of more than 200 distinctly named Protestant denominations. As of 2007, members of Evangelical Churches comprise 26% of the American population, while another 18% belong to mainline Protestant churches, and 7% belong to historically black churches.
Due to its large population and history, the United States has numerically more Christians and Protestants than any other country in the world. "
