i agree.
With the exception of stores that sell books and materials associated with a religion (which you would have no reason to be there), businesses don't normally identify themselves by their religious beliefs. The purpose of a business is to make money, not promote a religion. What would be your chance of success be if you opened a store for atheists only?

The world should respect your right to believe anything you want to believe. If you want that respect for yourself, you have to be willing to give it to everybody else.

Christianity is the largest practiced religion in the US. So, I would guess that most businesses are owned by Christians... And I would also guess every publicly traded company has at least 1 Christian stock holder... Or Buddhist... Or Jewish... Or Muslim... Or... So... I'm not sure how you can participate in commercial life in the US (or Europe, etc.) without putting money into the pocket of a person of faith. So, maybe look for a list of stores owned by atheists that only stock goods made by atheists containing only materials produced by atheists... Good luck with that!

Yes, but there's a huge difference between having Christian workers, and identifying the business as a "Christian" business. I'm an atheist, and I choose not to shop at any business that espouses religious beliefs. As noted above, business is not the place to sell religion. Unless religion is your business... in which case it's tax free. Hell of a racket they have going.
