Press Release from my friends at the National Atheist Party…
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Florence, KY— September 4, 2012 Proclaiming that Barack Obama is the only candidate with social justice, the concerns of the Middle Class, and a responsible fiscal policy as clear priorities for his second administration, the National Atheist Party publicly announces its support for his re-election.
“President Obama is the only president in history to acknowledge the existence of atheist, humanist and other secular voters. That he has done so without disparagement is a hallmark of his belief in tolerance and secularism, a stance which echoes the founding principles of this nation.” said Troy Boyle, President of the NAP.
Today’s announcement marks the first public endorsement of a candidate for any office that the National Atheist Party, a minor party formed in the Spring of 2011, has made.
The National Atheist Party applauds President Obama for the many successes he has had in office, even though faced with intransigent Republican opposition. “The majority of the American people are ready to accept the idea of gay marriage, an issue on which the President has recently spoken of in favorable terms.” said Boyle “Among many other issues, this is an issue that enjoys our membership’s unanimous support. We stand with the President and other responsible leaders who recognize that loving couples of any orientation should be allowed to marry.”
This endorsement was voted on by the 14,500+ general membership and supporters of the National Atheist Party and the consensus opinion represents the voices who made it clear that they support the re-election of Barack Obama. The National Atheist Party is a non-profit, 527 political organization devoted to issue advocacy and guided by the values of secular humanism and evidenced-based reasoning. The party seeks to politically represent U.S. atheists and all who share the goal of a secular government by gathering the political strength of secularists nationwide.
