Atheists raise funds for Sandy Hook victims.

Those of you who saw Obama’s speech at the Sandy Hook vigil the other night know that the tragedy is awash in religion.  The President’s talk was at an Interfaith vigil that put the emphasis on Interfaith as, once again, atheism was left out.  This is sad, considering that on the odds some of the victims and their families were non-believers.

So I’m happy to point out that Adam Brown (of Atheism Resource and We Are Atheism) has launched a fundraiser for the Sandy Hook victims.  No bibles, no agenda, save for making life a little easier for people who hadn’t planned on burying their children.  Check it out.
