Kramer vs. Kramer vs. God

Here I've been blathering from time to time in defense (essentially) of religious faith, something I've never felt strongly myself, so it's only right to showcase a potent example of its too-frequent ugliness. Today, Andrew Sullivan has a reminder of how pernicious anti-atheism can be. People of all religious persuasions have had cause to complain about persecution at some point in history, but maybe none more so than non-believers. I suppose it shouldn't be that surprising, but there's a disturbing trend of atheism being held against parents in custody situations. As Sullivan writes: "When Christianists declare that they are fighting for religious freedom, bring this issue up. It will determine whether they are in good faith, so to speak, or not."
