U.N. heard atheist plea on Monday that Atheists, humanists and freethinkers around the globe face widespread discrimination, with expression of their views criminalized and in some countries subject to capital punishment, the United Nations was told via a document for consideration by the world body's Human Rights Council. A global organization linking people who reject religion said atheism was banned by law in a number of states where people were forced to officially adopt a faith. “Extensive discrimination by governments against atheists, humanists and the non-religious occurs worldwide”, declared the International Humanist and Ethical Union (IHEU) which has some 120 member bodies in 45 countries.

Editorial Comment: Aren’t they just reaping what they have sown? After all, they must feel safe when they are in North Korea, China etc. All those communist nations including the old Communist USSR, have killed hundreds of millions of people just in the last 100 years or so because they didn’t accept the atheism of the countries’ founders. After all most places that violate human rights seem to be quite comfortable with atheism. Furthermore, atheists believe in natural selection through death of the “unfit”, so what are they complaining about? (Ref. Socialism, Philosophy, Religion)
