American Atheists

For generations, Americans have been indoctrinated into believing that we enjoy only freedom of religion; that is, we are free to choose which religion we care to profess as long as we choose one. We are presented with a bewildering array of belief systems and told, in effect, to "pick a card, any card," but we may not decline to play the game. American Atheists takes the position that you have the right to say "none of the above" when faced with the ever-growing list of sects in our denomination-glutted religious system. You have the right to question and challenge the claims of religious leaders and organizations. You have the right to investigate and reject the tenets of religious belief. We also think that it is your right to be free from the burden of financially supporting religion in general, and any sect in particular.

Finally, you have the right to hear the Atheist viewpoint when religious opinions are voiced in the public square.
