I'm sure many know here that there is a reasonably sizeable percentage of the population (Xians) who get very bent out of shape, proven by statements/sentiments such as:
I don't want my beliefs assaulted (or ridiculed).
Why do you tear down my beliefs every time we talk?
Why are you shoving your secular beliefs down my throat?
Why must you step on my beliefs?
So, here's the plan.
What if a group of atheists congregated (no pun) around a church on sunday and outwardly, talking amongst themselves either:
1) matter-of-factly talked about Osiris, Mithras, Sumerian, Santa Claus (technically a deity) or any other earlier religion discussing the parallels between Jesus and those deities, etc. with the INTENT of confusing their kids (or even the adults).
2) made outward fun of people who believed in god or Jesus, etc., laughing about it, making fair (but ridiculous in their minds) analogies.
Assume for now that we're not loitering or doing anything against any ordinances (technically, or in spirit).
Now, we know the Xians are going to get bent out of shape. The question is, what will they do about it? Complain to the paper? Try to pass ordinances in towns (where the atheists congregate) to prevent this form of freedom of speech (which it is).
If they had to go to church EVERY sunday for the foreseeable future KNOWING they are going to be "subjected" to anti-religious talk/sentiments, they're going to crack eventually (especially since their kids are involved and can hear).
Further down the line, if things were to get so out of hand that eventually state lawmakers were lobbied to pass restrictions on religious speech in the public square, we'd all know a theocracy has been born and it's time to move.
I'm not saying I'd do this, but it would be an interesting experiment. My larger point being, FEW religious people could withstand an "assault" (intellectual, logic, reason) on their beliefs on a continual basis without become a recluse or seriously thinking about their position.
