Recently, there’s been a lot of talk in the American atheist movement about social justice. But why doesn’t it include justice for religious minorities like Muslims and Sikhs? Click here for my essay, “Atheists Ignore Islamophobia at their Peril.“
P.S. Many thanks to CNN Belief for selecting an excerpt from this piece as their “Quote of the Day,” to the Center of Inquiry’s Morning Heresy for choosing a different excerpt as their “Quote of the Day,” to Hemant Mehta for writing an excellent response for his Patheos blog The Friendly Atheist, to Islamophobia Watch for a nice post about it, to LoonWatch for their post, and to the many other websites and individuals who have shared this piece, commented on it, started conversations about it, and more. I haven’t had a chance to look through all of it, but please know that I am very grateful that the discussion is happening.
