Re: Atheist jailed for beliefs
The discussion on people's religious beliefs seems to keep coming up, as it consistently has over the past few years. At this point, nothing new is often said that hasn't been stated before, and it just seems like these discussions seem to get repetitive.
In this case, I see no special significance in the fact that he doesn't believe in God. Well many religious factions have been persecuted over the years for their beliefs, and no persecution is more right than another. As long as someone's beliefs don't break any concrete moral law, or endanger the lives of others (and it's impossible for a belief to do this anyway), then they can believe what they want. If their practices involve the threat of death or immediate danger of anyone, then they must be stopped and erased at all costs.
