Anti-theists and Atheists Opposing Religious Harm - Homepage.
Ethos and Mission:
What a person believes isn't really an issue or any other person's business. It's what a person does with their belief that determines whether it's relevant to anybody else or not. Imposing religion upon others, as in, wanting to see religion taught as fact to impressionable schoolchildren, or lobbying to enact religiously biased laws, by default, makes religion everybody's business.
We non-violently oppose harmful religious doctrines. Religion's promotion of hate, prejudice and non free thinking is to most humane people unacceptable. We're not singling out any particular faith. Where faith causes harm, no longer can people of sense and reason stand by and be perceived to respect religious dogma, because of some imaginary unspoken agreement not to speak out for fear of offending the religious. Ironically, unlike the many conditions people of faith place upon their acceptance of certain people and groups, our love for humanity is truly unconditional; beyond neither harming or depriving another.
Followers of Islam and Judaism are seen as minority groups in the west, and with racist far-right organisations hiding beneath the banner of anti-religion, it's important to make clear, we have and want no association with such groups; whether opposing religion or not.

It's true being an atheist doesn't mean anything more than lacking a belief in a god(s). But, Madalyn Murray O'Hair, in defining an atheist for the US Supreme Court back in 1963, when she successfully removed Bible reading from all US public schools, summed up our group's ethos and ongoing mission perfectly.
"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."
- Madalyn Murray O'Hair
