Atheists should make more noise

Atheists should make more noise | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it
I am an atheist, don’t know why.

I’d like to tell you that I was one of those intelligent children who at age 11 gave the religion question careful thought and then alerted their parents that they wouldn’t be doing the church thing no more. Or that reading about the Holocaust had made me think of the open sky above Treblinka and wonder what kind of god didn’t care to notice the crematoria, especially when he could allegedly see a little sparrow fall.

Petition A Call to Atheists and Secularists to Defend Women's Right to Abortion and Birth Control

Atheists and secularists generally pride themselves on respect for science, opposition to harmful religious myths, and a fierce defense of the separation of church and state. Yet there is a critical need for atheists and secularists of conscience to collectively challenge the current moral, cultural, and political siege upon women’s right to self-determination. Flowing from each of these principles, we call on atheists and secularists to make public their support for women's right to abortion and birth control. Due to the insidious climate of anti-abortion propaganda and legislation these basic rights are being viciously imperiled.

Fox & Friends & Fr. Jonathan Morris Don't Need No Stinking Atheist Chaplains In US Military

Fox & Friends & Fr. Jonathan Morris Don't Need No Stinking Atheist Chaplains In US Military | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it

If there's one stimulus that's sure to get the Fox "News" audience salivating, it's anything connected to atheists or atheism. Christian conservatives, who applaud over people dying without health insurance and waterboarding, loathe atheists as much as they do "illegals" and gays. They are in agreement that atheists are trying to turn this "Christian nation" into a godless state based on ungodly reason - a concept that's anathema to victimized Christians for whom Fox "News" is a mouthpiece.

Atheists Treated Unequally in US Military

With the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell, you could say that the US military is undergoing some big changes, progressing towards a modern age. But are they still far behind when it comes to its chaplain program and the role that religion plays in counseling? And one man is pleading for atheist chaplains to be accepted, so that those without a religious background can get the same services, as everyone else. Jason Torpy, President of the Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers explains.

Only Atheists Should Hold Public Office

Only Atheists Should Hold Public Office | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it

Religion plays a big role in politics. Noted polling organization Pew Research just published a report detailing which candidate people are likely to vote for based on religion. A USA Today report suggests Rick Santorum's popularity in South Carolina has been significantly increased by his religious positions on issues and support of the evangelical Christian movement. That's all a shame because America would be better off if only atheists were allowed to hold public office.

Why is there Bigotry, Prejudice Against Atheists? Origins of Anti-Atheist Animus

Why is there Bigotry, Prejudice Against Atheists? Origins of Anti-Atheist Animus | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it

Atheists in modern America have more freedom and can be more open about their atheism than at any time in history. Paradoxically, this openness has led to more direct and public bigotry towards atheists than at just about any other time in history as well. Thus while there are more open atheists than ever before, there are also significant pressures on atheists to stay in the closet. Why is there so much bigotry and hatred directed at them, and why is most of it based upon misconceptions?
