I guess you could say, I'm the, "don't ram your beliefs down my throat, and we will get along just fine." type of atheist.

I get that. The trouble is that that is precisely what they do. Right now, in Northern Ireland, according to a Christian relation of my husband's on FB, there is an ecumenical push to stop evolution being taught in the schools, to be replaced by creationism. Talk about doing your best to give the impression of being a reactionary backwater. I don't know how much clout they have.
