Talk:Discrimination against atheists

Prejudice vs. Discrimination[edit]

This article still has difficulty with the examples it uses to show discrimination... a lot of the examples demonstrate prejudice against atheists... but not discrimination. These are not the same. Prejudice is based on attitude... discrimination is based on action. The Turkish poll discussed above is a very good example of this. The poll shows that many Turks are prejudiced against atheists... but for this to be discrimination, they would have to act on this attitude (by, for example, not selling houses to atheists, or restricting them to a specific section of town).

Merger proposal[edit]

I propose that Anti-atheism be merged into Discrimination against atheists. The anti-atheism article does not seem to cover any content that can't adequately be addressed in this article. I fail to see how anti-atheism differentiates from Discrimination against atheists enough to warrant a separate article at this time. I also have concerns about the balance and POV of that article as it stands. I would take what relevant content exists in that article, NPOV it as necessary, and add in to this article as part of a new section on anti-atheism. If a good case can be made why we need a separate article on anti-atheism then we should work to fix then lack of content in the article and NPOV the current content. --Notcharliechaplin (talk) 17:53, 10 May 2018 (UTC)

Merger rejection[edit]

I disagree with Notcharliechaplin in merging the articles together, as there is a substantial difference between being an anti-atheist and being discriminatory of atheists. I believe this user wants to place their particular views in this subject and therefore is biased into considering both things the same. I believe there needs to be more information on the matter but this will come in due time. Julio P. 23:34, 24 May 2018 (UTC)
