More Atheists Shout It From the Rooftops

"More than ever, America’s atheists are linking up and speaking out — even here in South Carolina, home to Bob Jones University, blue laws and a legislature that last year unanimously approved a Christian license plate embossed with a cross, a stained glass window and the words “I Believe” (a move blocked by a judge and now headed for trial).

They are connecting on the Internet, holding meet-ups in bars, advertising on billboards and buses, volunteering at food pantries and picking up roadside trash, earning atheist groups recognition on adopt-a-highway signs."

This piece from yesterday's New York Times picks up a theme I've been hearing a bit of lately, that Christianity, especially right-wing Christianity, may be on the decline in the United States. Find the complete story here.

Probably the activities of secular humanist groups in Canada is not such a big deal, unless of course you live in Halifax.
