With the publication in 2007 of Antony Flew’s momentous book,There is a God: How the World’s Most Notorious Atheist Changed His Mind, the debate among scientists on the issue of the existence or nonexistence of God reached a new level of excitement.

Over 40 Catholic groups across the nation have filed a dozen federal lawsuits to halt President Obama’s contraception mandate requiring employers — including Christian and other religious groups — to include free birth control and sterilization in the health insurance they provide employees. The groups named in the suits, including Notre Dame, Catholic University of America, and the Archdiocese of New York, “accuse the federal government of forcing them to support contraception, sterilization, and birth control in violation of their religious beliefs or face steep fines.”

Backing President Obama's "evolution" on the issue, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) has passed a resolution recognizing same-sex marriage as a civil right. The announcement was seen by political experts as a move to shore up support for President Obama in the black community, which has been at odds with the President over his aggressive efforts on behalf of the homosexual lobby.
Chen Guangcheng, the Chinese pro-life dissident who suffered years of abuse and imprisonment at the hands of Beijing’s communist government for exposing its cruel one-child abortion policy, has been given his freedom. Chen, his wife, and their two children landed at Newark Airport in Jersey May 12, and were immediately whisked to New York City, where Chen spoke to a crowd at New York University (NYU), briefly recounting his ordeal and renewing his commitment to battle the tyranny and injustice he and millions of others have suffered under China’s repressive government.

Why is atheism the privileged philosophy worthy of taxpayer support in America's schools? Why must Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish schools pay their own way, but atheist public schools are supported by billions of taxpayer dollars?
