Religious exemptions from medical care: Faith healing kills children. | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it
As preventable diseases like measles and whooping cough are reappearing in the United States, many anti-vaxxers are re-evaluating their opposition to immunization, and others are questioning nonmedical exemptions from vaccine requirements. The California state Senate, for instance, just overruled a long-standing law that permitted parents with religious and philosophical reservations...

New Rule: Any Politician Who Tries to Interject Religion into Government Should be Removed from Office Immediately

New Rule: Any Politician Who Tries to Interject Religion into Government Should be Removed from Office Immediately | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it
I’ve absolutely had it with these politicians who constantly try to inject their religion into politics and policy. Not only that, they run on the premise that our government should be based on biblical principles. Oh, by the way, it’s 100 percent unconstitutional for laws to be based on religion. But you don’t have to believe me, just read our First Amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion …

Madison bans discrimination against atheists, non-religious

Madison bans discrimination against atheists, non-religious | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — While conservatives in Indiana and Arkansas were explaining last month why their new religious objections laws weren't invitations to discriminate against gays, the leaders of Wisconsin's capital city were busy protecting the rights of another group: atheists. In what is believed to be the first statute of its kind in the United States, Madison banned discrimination against the non-religious on April 1, giving them the same protections afforded to people based on their race, sexual orientation and religion, among other reasons. It's hardly surprising that such a statute would originate in Madison, an island of liberalism in a conservative-leaning state and the home of the Freedom from Religion Foundation. But the ordinance's author, Anita Weier, said it didn't arise from an actual complaint about alleged discrimination based on a lack of religious faith.

Why the Future of Religion Is Bleak

Why the Future of Religion Is Bleak | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it
Source: The Wall Street Journal. Religion has been waning in influence for several centuries, especially in Europe and North America. There have been a few brief and local revivals, but in recent years the pace of decline has accelerated. Today one of the largest categories of religious affiliation in the world – with more than a billion people – is no religion at all, the “Nones.”

Godless Parents Are Doing a Better Job

Godless Parents Are Doing a Better Job | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it
Hate to break it to you, Bible thumpers: Parents who raise their kids without religion are doing just fine, studies say, possibly even better. Overall, not believing in God seems to make people and their offspring more tolerant. Less racist. Less sexist. Enviro-friendly. And their kids care less about what's cool, which—say it with me—only makes them cooler.
