As a young man Abraham Lincoln rejected religion and questioned the existence of god. He said “The Bible is not my book nor Christianity my profession.” Such a statement by a modern day politician would surely draw well-funded attack ads and probably bar him from election. Imagine the loss to our country if the radical religious minority of today were as powerful during Lincoln's times!
Yet agnostics, atheists and those who choose not to affiliate with a religious organization now comprise one fifth of the population. In fact we outnumber evangelicals.
Thanks to your support for the Secular Coalition for Arizona, we are the first state to have a fulltime, professional lobbyist representing the views and values of nontheists at the state legislature. And we are having an impact.
On this Presidents Day, can we count on you to support this important work and ensure that the views of one in five Arizonans--1,310,600 of us--are heard at the State Capitol?
