More Atheist Responses to ‘The Thaw’

The other day, I posted a video from Christian group Reach America called “The Thaw.” It featured young Christians talking about how they’re “persecuted” for their faith:

I also posted a video response that offered a crude-language-laden rebuttal to those claims… mostly because it cracked me up. But some of you were hoping to see a rebuttal that wasn’t so blatantly incendiary.
