Your opinions (so far as I can tell):
1. Christianity in America is becoming more and more radicalized.
2. American Christians dislike atheists and therefore lack logical reasoning and a proper understanding of science, because only atheists understand logic and science.
2. Why do you think science and religion are necessarily mutually exclusive? Does that mean every science, math, and logic teacher and student in America is either not a Christian or is an atheist?
3. All Christians are the same? Really? Or only 'radical Christians' (based on however you want to interpret this group) are a homogeneous group?
Kay.. I'm from Alaska, but I've lived in just about every state. My personal views are kinda wacky. I believe in God and Christ, I don't go to church, I've never listened to preachers without questioning them, and I personally hate ever religious person who tries to force their view on someone else.
That being said, I can agree that Chistianity is getting more radicalized because the religious parties are getting desperate. (don't believe me? check some of the arguments against gay marriage.)
I do have a bit of an issue with how #2 on the 'your opinions' is phrased. All but 2 of my friends are quite firm athiests, and I don't hate them. We do debate religion occasionally, but it's mainly for fun. I don't have grudges towards them afterwards and they don't towards me. I don't entirely believe in evolutionism, but I can agree that species evolve. (not here to argue, just stating personal views) I think this also leads into 'my questions' #2... Species evolve, but not necessarily to the entent presented by evolutionism.
And #3 I can speak to personally. One friend of mine who is Christian is Catholic, and she's not very strict on it, but she is firm in her beliefs. (made the pope = pedo joke and she laughed) But then on the other hand you have Southern Baptists. Not saything there's anything wrong with this group, but they're quite firm. My grandparents are Southern Baptist, and you can be of their religion and religious views and everything, but unless you attent their church, you're still a non-believing trator in some people's views.
And Arun's right about the religion in schools, though this mainly happens in the southeastern communities. I went to both a public school and a religious private school in North Carolina, and the only difference was that in the private school we attended church before lunch. But in the northern areas and larger states, the same can be said for evolutionsim being taught as fact and religion a bunch of crap. I've even seen it done in some of the rural Alaskan schools. Seperation of church and state is only a bunch of bs on paper-- it isn't applied anywhere.
So yeah.. me and my weird religious views. Hope that helps answer your questions Qi.
