We are dedicated to preserving the constitutional principle of separation of church and state and educating the public on matters relating to nontheism.

"An Atheist believes that a hospital should be built instead of a church. An atheist believes that deed must be done instead of prayer said. An atheist strives for involvement in life and not escape into death. He wants disease conquered, poverty vanished, war eliminated."
