Being atheist doesn’t mean to be a bad person, or whatever, it means that person believes in the power of humanity.Go through the world history and see how many people successful people where atheists.A lot of people treat atheists with suspicion considering it to be something inappropriate and out of this world.It may be even worse, when others start ignoring you or treating you in a bad way just because you have some other ideas about the world.At the time, the cultures in what is now the Middle East believed that a metal dome above the Earth's surface separated Heaven and Earth.
In the 19th and early-20th centuries, state courts in Indiana, Georgia and Pennsylvania cited religious reasons for preventing different people of different races from marrying each other.
People like this usually are narrow minded and cannot accept the ideas different from their own ones.
Why so many people reject atheistic points of view?
Proponents of these marriage bans framed their arguments in religious terms; legislators even quoted scripture and proclaimed that the ban was necessary “for the stability of society and for the greater glory of God.”The states’ lawyers defending these marriage bans have wisely refrained from invoking religion in their briefs to the high court, but they hint at it all the same; one state argues that the so-called “traditional definition” of marriage “goes back thousands of years.” And many of the third-party groups supporting the marriage bans have been even more explicit in arguing that their own religious beliefs justify their opposition to other people's marriages.
Some examples:* The Michigan Catholic Conference tells the court that “[t]he basis of our government is religion.” The brief repeatedly cites the Book of Genesis and argues that “God’s joinder of man and woman in marriage, exemplary as it is, inspired the secular law governing marriage.”* The brief of a coalition called “Religious Organizations, Public Speakers, and Scholars Concerned About Free Speech,” states that “[f]or two millenia, Christians have based their definition of marriage on the words of Jesus Christ.”* The Foundation For Moral Law, a group founded by Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, advises that “[t]he Bible, which has influenced moral values for Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and other religions, contains clear disapproval of homosexual conduct in the Old Testament (Leviticus ) and in the New Testament (Romans –27).”* A group of self-proclaimed “Major Religious Organizations” warns that the Supreme Court cannot recognize marriage equality “without inflicting grave harm on millions of religious believers and their cherished beliefs and institutions.”This is not the first time that religion has been invoked to justify marriage discrimination.
