Hi <<First Name>>,
Our thoughts are with Orlando this week. Like you, we support the LGBTQ community and encourage you to donate to a reputable cause.
We also support the Muslim community, in their right to be free from an ignorant and bigoted backlash. As nontheists, we want the same.
There's a new Muslim group that makes leaving the faith now not so black and white. Every level from the faithful to nontheist is welcome to join and show each other inclusiveness.
While supporting freedom of religion, we also stand up for reason, not faith, in decision-making at all levels: family, community, and government. If you missed the Reason Rally, we have the photos and that might bring you some comfort in this difficult time.
We met thousands of people at the UnitedCoR booth there, and got great photos of local CoR leaders and other nontheists.
Also this week, read an interview from our friends at the Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers of a retired US Army officer. And a letter from Humanist Chaplain Bart Campolo, who runs the Humanize Me podcast.
Please send your Orlando hopes and best wishes to us on Facebook and Twitter for us to repost.
United Coalition of Reason
Instead of creating a barrier, Muslimish is a new group that welcomes the entire spectrum of belief.
You'll find nontheists, lapsed Muslims, and those religious but open-minded. Solidarity is the best way to respond to Orlando.
Did you miss the Reason Rally in Washington DC? We ran a booth there.
See the photos and hear Jase's stories of energy and community.
