One-Third of Americans Under 30 Have No Religion -- How Will That C...

“[W}e need to turn away from the powerless rationalizations of the holy books, no matter how poetic they might be, and recognize that their power and their appeal flow from their humanity, not from their religiosity.” 

Myers, P.Z. (Paul Zachary) The Happy Atheist 

Faith in God does not give believers the moral high ground in the public square.

New Atheists Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, Daniel C. Dennett, and A.C. Grayling, launched criticisms against God and belief. Religion is, at best, superfluous, at worst,

“allied to racism and tribalism and bigotry, invested in ignorance and hostile to free inquiry, contemptuous of women and coercive toward children.” 

~ Christopher Hitchens
