Turkey blocks website of its first atheist association, So why Turkey is still praised for its "freedom" by the American media?

The Atheism Association, the first of its kind in any Muslim-majority country, was officially founded in Istanbul’s Asian-side neighborhood of Kadıköy in April 2014. However, the Gölbaşı 2nd Civil Court of Peace in Ankara has finally moved to block the association’s website, according to the group’s statement on March 3, 2015.

And it continues to be perfectly acceptable to discriminate against atheists if your society is de-facto christian or muslim while pretending to be secular.

Because the US does not want to offend them, for political and military reasons. The same reason our President refuses to use the word genocide.
