Humanist Network News
Humanist Network News, or HNN, is a weekly Internet magazine produced by the American Humanist Association (AHA). A typical edition of HNN contains news, opinion, lifestyle pieces, cartoons and humor...just like a regular newspaper except each piece addresses the nonreligious philosophy of humanism. HNN articles are written by the staff of the AHA and a variety of guest writers. HNN is published every Wednesday.

This morning I spoke at the National Press Club in Washington DC to help announce the launch of the Freethought Equality Fund, a new political action committee (PAC) dedicated to funding humanist, atheist and non-religious candidates for public office, along with candidates that support nontheist equality. I was thrilled to answer questions from reporters in the room from the Huffington Post, NPR, National Journal, Religion News Service, AP and others who recognize how far the secular movement has come in our political advocacy. As I said in my speech, it’s time for elected officials who are “closeted” about their non-belief to “come out” and represent the growing demographic of “nones” who support church/state separation and equality for nonbelievers.
