“Teen atheist” newspaper story

I’m in Chicago at the moment, and in the Chicago Tribune, I noticed a story about a 14-year old Illinois atheist fighting a “Silent Reflection and Student Prayer Act.”

It seems to treat nonbelief as a curiosity rather than as a menace, though there’s the “lawsuit-happy infidel being a nuisance for the community” media stereotype as a subtext through the story as well. I’m not entirely sure what to make of it.
