From retired phyicist and promoter of atheism, Victor Stenger:
It’s time for secularists to stop sucking up to Christians—and Muslims, Jews, Hindus, and any others who claim they have some sacred right to decide what kind of society the rest of us must live in or what a human being can do with her (or his) own body. The good news is that young people are joining the rising atheist movement in increasing numbers. I have not met one yet who is an accommodationist. I have great hope that in perhaps another generation, America will have joined Europe and the rest of the developed world in shucking off the rusty chains of ancient superstition.

So, if all these people are citizens and taxpayers, they still don’t have “some sacred right to decide what kind of society the rest of us must live in” … ?
Actually, they do have “some sacred right.” It is called “representative government.” Held by most to be a benefit.
About the young atheists, of whom he says, “I have not met one yet who is an accommodationist”: The correct word for them is thugs. In Britain, yobs. And, whether they like it or not, they will accommodate others’ civil rights – or face the consequences.
