Atheist hate-baiting op-ed in the Lowell Sun

Dear Friends:

Please join me in submitting a letter to the editor responding to this unfortunate house column in today's issue of the Sun: http://www.lowellsun.com/editorials/ci_22871904/under-god-faces. There is a comments section on the webpage, if you'd like to join the conversation there. 

"The atheists are back", the editorial begins. Do the editors think we *went* somewhere? Or that we're going to *go* somewhere, for that matter? It sounds like the editors need to be reminded that this isn't an us vs them culture; it's an "all of us" culture, where all of us -- atheists and theists -- have to work together for common purposes (like extending and defending the Constitutionally-protected rights to freedom of religion and of equal protection, for starters...).

Help bring some attention to this ugly expression of ignorance and prejudice; look on Twitter for @ahadave (David Niose) and @secularmass (the Secular Coalition for Massachusetts), and get some people talking about this.

An irritated,

Zachary
