I have subscribed to Free Inquiry for several years. I have just finished reading Non-Believer Nation by David Niose, which prompted me to seek out a group to affiliate with. (Found you via Google)
Money in politics, the environment (especially fracking and clean water), separation of church and state, corporations as "people"
I prefer non-believer, although my father always said to call myself agnostic when anyone asked my religion. Others would probably label me an atheist, but I dislike the term as it implies that "theism" is the norm -- and should be. I have also called myself secular humanist or just a humanist. I recently learned that my grandfather was a Free Thinker, so that term is of interest to me as well, although I don't know exactly how it differs from other labels.
I'm a life-long non-believer who resolved this year to "come out" as such. I think it's important that we non-believers become a known constituency.
