As we continue the long, hard slog through this year’s election cycle, the writers on this blog are going to get more involved in writing about election issues that affect us as atheist voters. For example, some of the issues that directly affect us are things like reproductive health, equality, tax policies, the spread of faith-based initiatives, and so forth. As a good place to start, I would like to make you aware of the Atheist Voter website. Here you can find a ton of resources, including things you can directly ask your local candidates to get insights into what they really believe.
This is a very scary time in American politics and there is a very real chance that this country could elect someone as president who will work hard to roll back 50 years of progress made by women, minorities, the LGBT community, and ethnic, religious minorities. The only way to counteract that possibility is to spread the word and VOTE!
