Without a prayer: Politicians of no faith afraid to say so

WASHINGTON    — Many lawmakers feel a sense of pride when asked to give the invocation to open a House session, but state Rep. Juan Mendez of Arizona was gripped by a different emotion. “”I came in with a little bit of fear,— not wanting to let myself be known,”” said Mendez, a freshman Democrat from Tempe.“

Known,” that is, as an atheist.

Even as Americans become less religious and their tolerance for atheism is growing, there are still very few politicians who are openly nonreligious. [Cont’d]

Question for you, followers!

If you have religious family members, how do you feel about participating in holiday celebrations with them? Do you celebrate secularly, boycott, play along to make your relatives happy…?

"The essence of Christianity is told us in the Garden of Eden history. The fruit that was forbidden was on the tree of knowledge. The subtext is, All the suffering you have is because you wanted to find out what was going on."
