Atheists Can Be Executed In Seven Nations

A recent study from the International Humanist and Ethical Union (IHEU) showed that non religious individuals in Islamic countries face the most severe treatment due to their beliefs.Afghanistan, Iran, Maldives, Mauritania, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Sudan are the counties in which citizens can be executed.

In addition, the publication of atheist or humanist views on religion are banned or limited under laws prohibiting "blasphemy" in Bangladesh, Egypt, Indonesia, Kuwait and Jordan.

The 70 page report, known as "Freedom Of Thought 12," also touched upon non believers in the United States.

"In at least seven U.S. states, constitutional provisions are in place that bar atheists from public office and one state, Arkansas, has a law that bars an atheist from testifying as a witness at a trial."

In October, I wrote an article that discussed the dwindling religious beliefs of Millennials in America: One Fifth Of American Adults Have No Religious Affiliation

Personally, I'm an Agnostic, and believe that the human race has no insight on the afterlife. Whether there is one or not.

Believe what you want and live your life; just don't oppress others.
