What I mean by this title is that there are many American’s who are sympathetic to the idea that “real” American’s love God, and that if you don’t love God you should not be here. I, for example, feel that way about this country to a significant extent, i.e. I feel that if you hate this country you shouldn’t stick around and milk it while talking about how much it sucks.
In other words, I simply feel that many view hating God and hating this country as one in the same. So I wasn’t saying that there were many who were as extreme as the writer of this editorial, but that many harbor the same sorts of feelings about atheism and America. My apologies for the FUDiness alarmism…that’s not what I was aiming for.
