+Paul Gray I think atheism is a belief, and I assumed that was much of the reasoning behind the phrasing. You can probably split hairs over whether not believing in something is a belief in and of itself, and I agree that atheist groups should be allowed to form and have freedom of expression, but I don't think that the phrase you're quoting discriminates in any way.
