New Website Documents Anti-Atheist Discrimination Worldwide

Last year, the International Humanist and Ethical Union published “Freedom of Thought 2012: A Global Report on Discrimination Against Humanists, Atheists and the Non-religious” (PDF):

This report shows that atheists, humanists and other nonreligious people are discriminated against by governments across the world. There are laws that deny atheists’ right to exist, curtail their freedom of belief and expression, revoke their right to citizenship, restrict their right to marry, obstruct their access to public education, prohibit them from holding public office, prevent them from working for the state, criminalize their criticism of religion, and execute them for leaving the religion of their parents.

IHEU has now launched a support site for that report at FreethoughtReport.com and they’re also seeking information from people around the world who are subject to systematic, legal discrimination in their country — especially countries that aren’t included in their 2012 report. (If you want to submit something, there’s a secure way to do it.)

This report will become an annual tradition — one that would end soon in an ideal world.
