Last year, while attempting to right a research paper on freedom of the press (mostly on book banning), I noticed that it was extremely difficult to find anything positive about Philip Pullman's trilogy, His Dark Materials. This was not because they weren't good books (I thought they were excellent), but because Philip Pullman is an atheist and is not shy about it. There was no shortage of fundamentalist Christian reviews or even moderate Christian reviews, but it took me hours of searching to find what I needed. Why is it that in the 21st century, atheism is still considered taboo to so many people? Why did it take so long to find a decent and credible article from a secular source?
