Wow. You need to read “Atheists misunderstood in US, but don’t need to remain silent,” written by Brandon Givens and published in the Gainesville Times. Despite the clunky title, it’s one of the clearest, most succinct defenses of atheism I’ve ever read. And just up the road in Gainesville, Georgia! Kudos to Brandon Givens for an excellent column. I wish I’d written it.
