Should everyone in a country have the right to practice any religion they wish? Why or why not?
Do you think the government should have the ability to “manage” religious expression? Should the government should be guided by religious principles? Why or why not?
Do atheists have any special problems in your country (if your origin country is not the US)?
In 2009 a campaign started which promoted the slogan: “God probably doesn’t exist, now stop worrying and get on with your life.” What is your opinion of this?
