The United States is caught in the grasp of widespread religious delusion and Christian privilege. Secular education, and science education in particular, suffer from the promotion of superstition and myth.

For Atheist Revolution, this revolution is not about eradicating religious belief; it is about showing people that it is unnecessary, irrational, and often destructive.
