By David Sherfinski - The Washington Times - June 24, 2013

The Secular Coalition of America on Monday reported a “positive step” in opening lines of communication between the White House and the “nontheistic community” after the group’s executive director and others held a recent meeting with administration officials.

“We are pleased that the White House is looking at ways to better include the nontheistic community,” said Edwina Rogers, the group’s executive director. “The administration seemed to recognize the need for nontheistic inclusion and seemed open to finding areas where we can work together.”
