War on Christians?

The fundamentalist Christian right often laments that there is a “war on Christians” by secular society in the U.S. Indeed, as Easter approaches, such complaints inevitably increase. Consider, however, these clearly un-Constitutional clauses in various state constitutions that make atheists ineligible for public office (or at least not accorded the same rights to run for public office), including Mississippi, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas.
It’s unbelievable today that such blatantly un-Constitutional clauses can remain, even today, in the constitutions of various states. You don’t have to be an atheist or agnostic to see such clauses as being profoundly offensive.
The whole concept of a “war against Christians” is nothing more than the whining of fundamentalists who want to keep seeing their religious iconography and language incorporated in governement.
