Today In Intimidation: The Atheist Registry

"Pastor" Mike Stahl from Florida has a great new idea to improve America!  With the parlous state of affairs in our country, we clearly need some solutions now!  So who does Pastor Mike identify as the greatest threat that we need to target? 

Atheists.  Uh-huh, that's right.  Pastor Mike, who doesn't have a physical church but instead just an online ministry, is taking to the interwebz to advocate releasing personal information about atheists in America in order to boycott their businesses and proselytize to them:
Pastor Mike compares atheists to “convicted sex offenders , ex-convicts , terrorist cells , hate groups like the KKK , skinheads , radical Islamists , etc..”  He claims that the purpose of this organization/website called, "The Christian National Registry of Atheists" is to inform the public of known atheists so that they can be proselytize to and their businesses can be boycotted.
How would a Christian proselytize to an atheist if the atheist’s physical address is not included? This author speculates that this distinction was made more for legal reasons than for practical reasons. Should an address be supplied by such a website, the organization might be held responsible for any violence that “good Christians” might perpetrate on atheists.
 What's next?  Are atheists going to have to walk around wearing armbands with the Flying Spaghetti Monster on them so that they can be easily identified?
