    I would think that Mr. Robert Green Ingersol should not be left out as one of the most influential, outspoken and famous atheists of this time period. Mr. Ingersol toured the country speaking on civil liberties and morals, showing how religion in no way influenced good morals.

    You need only look at how the Mormons were persecuted to find more examples of religious intolerance.

    No offense, but persecuting someone for not believing in mystical stories about sky deities and persecuting someone for believing one particularly crazy rendition of a sky deity story are two completely different things.

    Persecution is wrong, but let's not pretend that ostracizing someone for holding a crazy belief is the same thing as ostracizing someone for NOT holding a crazy belief.
