One could say thesame about people who don't have children, yet their taxes go to pay for schools for other people's children. One could say the same about people who don't drive, that there taxes are taken to provide roads for others who drive. Yu could say the same about people who are younger, whose elder relatives have long-since passed, or whose families were never stricken by disabilities . . their taxes go to pay for health care services for elderly and disabled. I think you could say the same about people who distrust the scientific method, yet their tax dollars are taken to fund research that they don't think should be done or that they think has no validity. You could say the same about pacifists that oppose all or most wars, yet their taxes are used to wage wars. I think there are things that each of us have seen our tax monies spent on that we do not use, benefit from or we even oppose, yet the money gets used like that anyway.
As for the "militant atheists", I have said here before that I think it is time for the great majority of Americans who are Christians to rise up and take action, forcefully if necessary, to defend their right to public expressions of their faith and to be respected by others. Many Christians would resist this because they don't feel that use of force is what God would want for them to do. And, we all know that atheists would love to taunt Christians who acted-out by saying, "Some faith you have there . . assaulting people! Your religious is a farce!" But, I think any group can only be pushed so far.
People don't tend to mess with Jews because, as a group, they wield wealth and power and can crush anyone they wish. People don't tend screw with Muslims because, as a group, those people will physically attack you, blow you up and/or put a bounty on your head. Only with peaceful, timid Christians do non-believers feel safe in attacking . . we won't do much more than ask you to stop. Well, I think this pussy-footing needs to stop. Christians need to come togetgher to DEMAND fair treatment or their persecutors will suffer harsh consequences. Forget appealing to fairness . . all some understand is force and pain.
