Atheism as Social Justice

Social justice is the view that everyone deserves equal economic, political, and social rights and opportunities. Sarah Jones wrote a post yesterday about why, despite the fact that she’s an atheist, she is not a secular activist.  This made me think long and hard about how our movement receives wonderful activists who agree with us …

My Muslim Facebook Friends
