Atheist Women
Previous Entry :: Next Entry

A fellow on C-Span2, who has written a biography of Madalyn Murray O'Hair.

An interesting, if acerbic, woman.

And I wonder...why were most of the leading public proponents of atheism (such as O'Hair and Objectivist Ayn Rand) women?

Is it because they grew up as second-class citizens in patriarchal societies, and chose not to buy into a very patriarchal religious system?

I wonder, where were the atheist men at the forefront of battling the melding of church and state? These days we've got Michael Newdow, who isn't half the warrior that O'Hair was.
