American Atheist’s Dave Muscato at Rutgers November 21 to
Rally Support for Court Battles That Seek To Separate Religion from Government
American Atheists Public Relations Director Dave Muscato will urge students and others to move “From Slactivism to Activism: Turning Atheists into Activists” in a talk Thursday, November 21, 2013 at 7:30pm. The event will take place in the Red Lion Café, Rutgers Student Center, Lower Level, on the College Avenue campus.
Front and center will be a discussion of three cases that American Atheists are currently pursuing in the courts. American Atheists v IRS seeks the elimination of favoritism toward religious institutions as opposed to other non-profits in national tax policies. American Atheists v Kentucky seeks to remove language stating reliance on ‘Almighty God’ from the training and educational materials and from public plaques of the Kentucky Office of Homeland Security. American Atheists v Port Authority seeks to disallow solo placement of a Christian Cross at the 9/11 Memorial.
Muscato is a former Christian praise and worship musician who became an atheist activist in 2009. His projects have appeared in Rolling Stone, People, Time, The New York Times, SPIN, Entertainment Weekly, Billboard Magazine, and on MTV News, NPR, MSNBC, Kevin & Bean/KROQ in LA, and Howard Stern.
