Atheists don’t agree on much of anything, except that they have the right to disagree and disbelieve. Atheists do share in common a belief that they ought not to be made second class citizens in punishment of their disbelief. Sadly, the Democratic Party no longer supports the idea that non-religious Americans should not be excluded and discriminated against. Throughout the Democratic National Convention in Denver, the Democrats have been excluding nonreligious Americans from access to party leaders. The Democratic Party is on the verge of enacting a platform that makes the Democrats a religious party in favor of government funding of churches and other religious organizations.
It’s a small silver lining, but now atheists do share one thing: The need to come together for the sake of mutual defense. We don’t have a political party that will speak up for our rights. We need to speak for ourselves.
And so, a podcast speaking out on this very subject.
