That said, given the current state of the U.S., and anxious that the Christian nutjobs may begin using "religious freedom" to strip away my rights, I've decided it's time to do *something.*. That something was joining American Atheists.

There are of course other groups that fight for nonbelievers' causes, such as Freedom from Religion Foundation (which I've read splintered from AA due to MMOH's shenanigans), the American Humanist Association, the Richard Dawkins Association for Science and Reason, and others. Are all of these equally good organizations to support? Do they cooperate and work with eachother, or kind of do their own thing? I think there may have been problems with AA when the O'Hairs were in charge--and that's not denying Granny Maddie's huge contribution to the fight against American religious tyranny--but things seem to be better these days. Thanks!

1.) Why do you call christians "nutjobs"?
2.) Why do you think organizing atheists is needed? And in what way would that be any better than christians organizing themselfs?
3.) What would be a common goal of such atheist organisations? Blaming believers for all the hustle you believe they are causing?
4.) Why not dropping the battle-frield "titles" like christians vs. atheists and get real in what actually is causing certain problems, environmentally, economically and socially?
5.) Have you engaged in Sam Harris' "teachings" too much, lately? Just askin'..
6.) Atheists have exactely WHAT in common?

And please excuse me being rigid by posting lists. I formally apollogize for that.

Here's some non-rigid remark:

I have nothing, whatsoever, in common with Richard Dawkins. Although...we're both Europeans.

RE: Supporting Atheist Organizations
I would love to support an Atheist organization, but seeing as I lack money and a job, I'd love to do so as an employee. I do have marketable skills to anyone interested!

RE: Supporting Atheist Organizations
The only atheistic organizations I would support would be the Freedom from Religion group and The Satanic Temple. They both fight to keep religion out of where it does not belong
