Atheism and Asylum
I felt this was an important link to share, for a behind the scenes breakdown of what goes into asylum sponsorship programs. It's encouraging to see secular organizations lending a helping hand to those in need.

RE: Atheism and Asylum
You have to wonder -- if we made asylum for atheists automatic for those in countries where it's dangerous to be an atheist --- how long would it be before the Middle East emptied out????

You have to wonder how long it would take to empty the Middle East if we made asylum automatic for any reason! :-)

The asylums wouldn't work. They would be bombed before they were even built. Terrible idea.

Not a terrible idea, just a terrible world we live in that we would need to come up with such ideas, and be powerless to enact them.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

That's why we need the ADF - the atheist defence force. We will protect you - provided you state your disbelief in God. We will also round up all the theists and give them wedgies. 'Cos we're evil like that.

It would be anti-violent and anti-militarism.

Atheism and Asylum
Didn't wanna start a new thread, since this deals with similar issues. Below is a link to an ongoing effort to help a refugee, fleeing due to death threats and general religious persecution. I'm not advocating for donations, just like to shine a light on secular organizations lending a helping hand.
