this is fairly significant folks.  as a constituency we are being ignored. most of us want some pretty basic things but politicians don't cater to us.  by some accounts non-believers carried the day for Obama this past November.  

what would most of us want?  here are my most basic requests:

1.  federal ban on creationism

2.  prayer and religious ornaments banned from public grounds

3.  legal abortion (i know it's legal, but it needs to be way more legal in some states)

4.  legal weed (i know it's not universal but i have a feeling it's close)

5.  end of abstinence only sex ed

6.  pentacostals all put in loony bins

ok, i can compromise on #6.  

feel free to add what i missed.

Odd. I didn't bother checking out the comments before you mentioned it, I just looked and all I can see are two comments from atheists responding to a "Connie" who's comment I can't see. Do they delete comments there?

Bill Maher discusses how unrepresented atheists are in congress.

It's so true!  I LOVE Bill Maher!  I hope he's right and we eventually get acceptance and representation.

Sounds like a good list.
