Will the faithful stand their ground?

I am a bit puzzled by the outright assault on religious beliefs lately. I am also concerned with the lack of support of communities who, when given an opportunity to stand up to Atheists, don't. I am wondering what these communities are waiting for? Are you just a Sunday-only worshiper or do you indeed live your faith?

For those who don't believe in religion, what is so wrong with people who do believe in a higher power? What are non-believers afraid of? Do you think we should just dismantle our Founders by undoing the Constitution (which was founded on religious beliefs)? If you want to undo the religious belief in this country, what do you replace it with? Worship of the earth? United Nations? Money? Other people's stuff?

If we get rid of the morality of the laws, that were founded on religious teachings, should we then allow killing because the Bible forbids it? Do Atheists actually believe in anything? Is not your non-belief a religion in itself? Why are people of faith allowing Atheists to force their non-belief on people who do believe in a God? What is wrong with teaching religious beliefs of compassion, empathy, helping others or donating to the poor?

I will leave you with this quote from John Adams: "The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God."
