Openly Secular Takes Aim at Discrimination Against Atheists

Several secular groups, including the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science, Secular Student Alliance, Secular Coalition for America, and Stiefel Freethought Foundation, have launched a new project called Openly Secular. Openly Secular seeks to build on the Out Campaign by taking on discrimination and bigotry aimed at atheists, secular humanists, and others who do not believe in gods.

I must admit that I am still a bit fuzzy on Openly Secular's goals and how (or if) they differ from the goals of most secular organizations, but it appears that they are starting by collecting examples of discrimination from atheists. If you have one to share, you can do so here.

I look forward to seeing what is next from the new coalition.
