The unbelievers: New Atheism and the Old Boys’ Club

The unbelievers: New Atheism and the Old Boys’ Club

Bitch Magazine points out

“From Madalyn Murray O’Hair, the founder of American Atheists, whose 1963 Supreme Court lawsuit brought an end to prayer in public schools, to Sergeant Kathleen Johnson, who started an organization for atheists in the United States military, to Debbie Goddard, founder of African Americans for Humanism, countless women have worked as successful atheist activists.”

It goes even further back. Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton were atheists, pointing out that God made a perfect enforcer for men’s prejudices.
