A plane flew over New York City on the Fourth of July last week with a banner that read, “Atheism is Patriotic.”
The meaning behind that banner will be the topic of a public discussion hosted by the Agnostic and Atheist Student Association at the patio at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
The president of American Atheists, which paid for the New York banner, said “religion is unpatriotic at its core, because it places its law above the law of the land. Indeed religion abhors civil law, which is why we see attacks against science and privacy coming from our religious politicians. Religion asserts itself on the population at large by infiltrating the political system with true believers who will then use the political system to do the church’s bidding.”
