The Boys Scouts of America is considering a dramatic retreat from its controversial policy of excluding gays as leaders and youth members.
A growing trend emerged from a comprehensive 2010 study of worldwide religions: roughly one-in-six (1.1 billion, 16 percent) of the world’s population claims no religious affiliation.
It happens every week at meetings in towns, counties and cities nationwide. A lawmaker or religious leader leads a prayer before officials begin the business of zoning changes, contract approvals and trash pickup.
One-fifth of American adults have no religious affiliation, and this number is growing rapidly.
Next month, the atheist movement will make its voice heard and its presence known by way of the Reason Rally, a large-scale event that organizers hope will unify a large part of the secular community.
