Every now and then I read an article and say, "WOW ... I wish I would have said that."
After reading the article linked below entitled, "Homosexuality, Atheism etc: What' it to you?" I felt that every politician in America should be made to read it before taking office. It wouldn't hurt the general public to consider the message either.
The thing is with religion, it install a feeling that you are better than others. Both when I was a Christian and then a Muslim you get the feeling that you ARE better than the non-believers or the other sects of the same religion. They don't go to heaven, you do stuff like that.
So they feel a moral obligation to make stuff like my sexual orientation, or lack of beliefs their business.
I know in most religions evangelising is seen as a requirement by those in charge. I remember reading an article on "how Dawah is the 6th Pillar of Islam"
So most will ignore the article. I wouldn't if I was still brainwashed
