I was on MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry Show this morning to discuss religion and the tragedy in Newtown. Today’s episode was guest hosted by Joy Reid, and I sat alongside Anthea Butler, Rev. Serene Jones, and Rev. Joe Watkins.

In the two clips below, I discuss the importance of Humanist community and including atheists in interfaith efforts, and the troubling trend of prominent public figures demonizing atheists after incomprehensible tragedies.
