"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality." --Bishop Desmond Tutu

Family Values minus the magical thinking

The American Humanist Association is running the following ad.

This, combined with his shout-out to the athiests/agnostics during his inauguration speech gives me hope in the decline and fall of magical thought. From the ad:
“Given the increasing diversity of America’s population, the dangers of sectarianism
have never been greater. Whatever we once were, we are no longer just a Christian
nation; we are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu
nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.”
