Examples of Discrimination Against Atheists

As I have learned from previous posts on this subject, the question of whether atheists face discrimination for their lack of belief is controversial, even among atheists themselves. Some of us can readily identify examples of discrimination in our own experience. Others deny the existence of discrimination seemingly because they have not personally experienced it.

This article by Margaret Downey from Free Inquiry magazine and reprinted on the Council for Secular Humanism website may be of interest. Downey makes a compelling case for acknowledging discrimination atheists face at the hands of theists, providing a few notable examples.
