Today's article is Art and Religion by Caroline K. You can read it here:

I would really encourage you to read this one. It's very informative and I felt I learnt a lot from it.

Mike, funnily enough I had that idea just the other day! I've got quite a lot of submissions about the effect of religion on sexuality and lgbt issues, so I thought I would make a series out of it. I spent this morning making a nice pretty calendar for submissions (there are so many, I had to find a way to organize) and have planned a Religion and Sexuality series for Monday 15th August - Sunday 21st August. I'll announce it a week before. 


I love your two suggestions for topic weeks. Deconversion stories are a must and I will definitely do a topic week on them at some point.

Avicenna, sure I would love to see your articles. There is a "submit an article" page on the blog with the email address you send stuff to. The age limit isn't that important, don't worry. Happy birthday for Wednesday!

Oooh, one more thing. I there's anyone artistic and techy out there, it would be lovely to have a nice graphic for Generation Atheist. At the moment all we have is that very yellow lightbulb I randomly found.

Monday's Generation Atheist article is A Personal Story, By Zoe R. You can find it here:

In other news, I went away for a few days and came back to find my inbox flooded with submissions! This is all thanks to the Friendly Atheist blog, which kindly gave us a shout out. Thank you all who have sent me submissions. They will all appear on the blog at some point.

Laura, thank you for creating this resource. I'm 61, so I don't fit your target audience, but many young people write to me who feel terribly alone as atheists. They fear losing their friends, being harassed, abandoned, or abused by their families, and so they suppress themselves, and spiral down into the beginnings of depression. I will be referring them to your site. I know it can be a lot of work, but please keep it up. What you do is very needed and welcome.
