Where in the world is it most difficult to be an “out” atheist?”

What many of us knew already is finally making some news:  it is dangerous to be a non-believer in much of the world.  Below is the poll that I had on the main page for a few days; the results are interesting but not surprising.  Please add your comments about both the linked article and the poll.  How can atheist-oriented organizations help move us in a safer direction for all?

    I agree with vel. Governments fuel hatred against non-believers and in some cases advocate for their killing. That’s what makes it most dangerous.

    I’d say the Middle East, just because the gov’ts are complicit in making it dangerous. Central America is a close second, though with the Christians trying to convert each other from catholicism, to protestantism to whatever the flavor of the day is, they are more concerned with each other.

    The US South is only relatively safe because most American Christians are more afraid of going to jail in a fairly secular system than they are of their god and its “commandments”.
