Are any of you involved in this: A national atheist organization has ramped up its plan to organize local chapters in all 50 states by setting up a lobbying group in Tennessee, among other locations. I didn't know Tennessee is a hotbed of atheism?

"This year, that changes."
New York, North Carolina,Washington, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Mexico, Ohio, Kansas and Iowa will all also be getting local chapters from the organization, and the secular group plans to campaign for laws in each state that protect humanist and secular rights and ensure the separation of church and state.
