Saturday Link Love is a feature where I collect and post links to various articles I’ve come upon over the past week. Feel free to share any interesting articles you’ve come along as well! The more the merrier.

Anti-Abortion Leader Emerges As White Nationalist, on Huffington Post—“Hatten added that while she is proud to be white, she does not identify as a white nationalist or a white supremacist because she believes all races have a right to their own homelands.”

American Muslims Are Now More Accepting Of Homosexuality Than White Evangelicals, on Huffington Post—“While homophobia certainly still exists in American Muslim communities, as a whole, American Muslims are slowly becoming more accepting of homosexuality. And notably, they’re doing it at a faster rate than white evangelical Protestants.”

Too Many Atheists Are Veering Dangerously Toward the Alt-Right, on Vice—“Richard Spencer, the white supremacist and movement figurehead who coined the term ” alt-right,” discussed his atheism last year in an interview with atheist blogger David McAfee.”
