Atheist Group Launches Site For Kids

The American Humanists Association has launched a new website to support young atheists. They write:
This engaging resource offers a welcoming home for humanist, atheist and other non-traditionally religious kids where they can find information untainted by supernaturalism on a wide range of topics, including religion in public schools, science, discrimination, sexuality, and reading suggestions. “Whether they already made up their minds to reject supernatural explanations, or are just questioning, it’s time to make available an online resource that’s built just for kids without God,” said Roy Speckhardt, executive director of the American Humanist Association. “These kids may be from traditionally religious families, or from families like that of President Barack Obama, whose mother was a secular humanist. will be a friendly online community for kids who might be too shy to ask an adult directly what it’s like to be good without a god.”
The group says they will support the new site with an ad campaign that will appear on numerous websites as well as on city buses in the Washington DC area.  They note that Disney and National Geographic have refused to run the ads on their sites.
