If I thought the talk on banning Muslims was a joke, I wouldn't be as concerned.
If I thought anybody would seriously start shooting Trump voters, I would be concerned.

The fact that somebody had to point out the obvious to you is predictable.
You probably not being able to learn anything from it? Unavoidable.
Never mind the slight shift for a bit. Would you want Satanism and witchcraft to be banned here?

I'm not sure I understand the question.
As they would be religions, government discriminating against them would be unconstitutional.

Additionally, I think some people have misconceptions about what Satanism actually is. When Paul Ryan showed fondness for Ayn Rand (along with many others), I wonder if they truly appreciated how far that went away from Christianity and closer to "Satanism".

I did not ask the US government. I asked you.

To be more explicit, I would not want those banned here for the reasons explained.

I wonder what the opinion would be if those groups started terrorism in the name of the two mentioned beliefs.

All Satanists aren't this one hive mind, nor is that true of any religion. Also we have freedom of religion in this country, and that includes the ones you don't like.

But then of course, if there were to be formed a religion that called for death to all atheists, and anti-atheist terrorist attacks were to become the norm, all atheists would still respect their freedom of religion. Remember there are no extremists in the anti-atheist religion. They are all loyal to the killing of atheists.

NOTE--Watch for the detour, people. It will be shifted toward Muslim extremists or Christian ones. I will hold my breath.

Not implying that the poster quoted above is an atheist either.

This is an odd and extremely specific hypothetical. We don't have a religion that was founded on killing all atheists nor do we have one where all the adherents are pro-killing atheists.

Even if such a thing existed though, I'd still believe in freedom of religion. You should always be allowed to believe or not believe whatever you want, it's part of what makes this country great. When those beliefs cross over into action however, that in itself is an entirely different basket of eggs.

Islam IS already an entirely different basket of eggs. Show me one Muslim who does not believe that Islam is the main source of legislation for Muslims. ISIS is going farther and is attempting to shove Sharia by force down the throats of every nation on the planet. You can either accept Islam willingly, or you can courteously tell the fanatic holding your loved ones hostage, "No, thank you."

ACLU Colorado announced the resignation of Loring Wirbel as chapter representative. The ACLU doesn't publicly support his vintage propaganda.

He should've quickly retracted his "joke". A first grader can't get away with that kind of talk these days.
