the secular coalition of america

Atheists. Humanists. Freethinkers. Americans. The Secular Coalition for America is the only organization in the nation whose primary purpose is lobbying Congress on behalf of atheists, humanists, freethinkers, and other nontheistic Americans. From our office in the nation's capital, our full-time lobbyist and support staff engage public policy makers and the media on issues ranging from religion's influence on education and medical research to the privileging of faith groups by government. We are the first and only cooperative venture of eight member organizations coming together to improve the political situation of a previously unrepresented constituency: the tens of millions of atheists and agnostics in the United States.

Each and every human being on this planet has the right and the free will to believe what they want to believe concerning God and the existence of an afterlife. As a Christian, I have no right to force another human being to think or believe in a certain way. I do have the right, however, to choose to support those political candidates who share my beliefs. I also have the right to shine a spotlight on the beliefs of current office holders.

The Secular Coalition of America recently published a "scorecard" showing how closely each and every member of Congress adhered to the secular agenda. Let's look at the winners, shall we? links to the scorecard for the House of Representatives. Note how many so-called "moderates" have an atheist rating of 90 or 100. Note also that most Democrats are absolutely loved by the atheists. Is that who we want running America?
