MESSAGE FROM THE EDITOR: Create Your Own Religion Competition

Posted October 09, 2013

Because we here at the American Humanist Association appreciate creativity as much as philosophy, I thought HNN readers would enjoy hearing about The Huffington Post's 2013 Create Your Own Religion Competition. It's simple: name your religion, and include its beliefs, rituals and holidays. After all, atheists are famous for creating the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, but what else can we come up with? Some of my favorites from last year's competition include "Church of Latte Saints" (true awakening), Committeeism (anyone who's served on board knows what this is about) and Cheesanity ("Honor thy gouda, and holy cow"). Take part by uploading your made-up religion on The Huffington Post's page, and tell us about it so we can share your new religion with HNN readers next week!

MESSAGE FROM THE EDITOR: Our Commitment to Accountability

Posted October 02, 2013

I'm pleased to announce that, for the third year in a row, the American Humanist Association has met all twenty Standards for Charitable Accountability by the Better Business Bureau's Wise Giving Alliance. The BBB's evaluation process involves rigorous scrutiny of a charity's governance, effectiveness, finances, solicitations and informational materials---beyond what government regulators require. On top of this, the AHA continues to receive a four-star rating on Charity Navigator, be listed as a Silver Participant on GuideStar, and qualifies as a member of the Combined Federal Campaign.

We at the American Humanist Association are proud to demonstrate our commitment to accountability and ethical practices, so that when you support the AHA, your dollars are put to good use---whether they're toward increasing our legal activity to defend humanist rights, making the humanist voice heard in the halls of Congress, or supporting our grassroots network to build humanist communities at the local level. Your support matters. Donate today.
