Does this mean that the whole "no one has ever killed in the name of Atheism!" argument that Dawkins fans like to use is sunk, or will it just change?

It was only a matter of time, once Atheism got a big enough umbrella.

If Atheists become the majority, I expect seeing active persecution of the religious. They suffer from  the same monkeydom that all the other monkeys suffer from.

On one hand, I'm in favor of this, because Christians are funny when you smack 'em.

On the other hand, atheists are funny all the time.

Just like America uses the excuse to invade other countries as "Defending our Freedom.", Christians like to fantasize about being prosecuted on a massive scale just so they can get a rain-check on freely abusing any group they want.

A rain check is where you get a ticket to buy something that is out of stock so that you can get it later at the reduced price. Christians have been spending persecution points on credit for centuries. We may be reaching the point where they start paying for that with interest. Some people want more than just the rights that have been denied them my Christians, they want the Christians to suffer, and if there's one thing that Christians love more than telling people how to live, it's a good, old-fashioned, self-fulfilling prophecy.

Right, I wasnt sure of using the right term, but i like the metaphor you went along with.
