  • 8. A Problem in the Community <ul><li>In Politics, the salient line between church and state is constantly blurred. Some churches are favored, gay marriage is kept illegal in some states, and there is a debate over God being printed into our currency and being said in the pledge of allegiance. </li></ul>
  • 9. Problem in the Community (Cont.) <ul><li>The NYC Atheists want to inform the public and those with dissenting opinions about atheism so that they may understand that freedom OF religion includes freedom FROM religion. </li></ul>
  • 10. An Ideal Funding Institution <ul><li>The Foundation for Critical Thinking ( www.criticalthinking.org ) would be an ideal funding institution for the NYC Atheists because their priority is “to promote essential change in education and society through the cultivation of fair-minded critical thinking.” </li></ul>
  • 11. Critical Thinking <ul><li>The NYC Atheists promote critical thinking because they examine ideas concerning religion in today’s society. The NYCA’s website offers a forum which is the scaffolding for many of these discussions and debates. </li></ul>
  • 12. Critical Reading <ul><li>The NYC Atheists use critical reading to know everything that might be relevant. For example, historian Sarah Gordon gave a presentation on how blasphemy is still technically punishable by law since it is still in the books of many states. </li></ul>
  • 13. Critical Action <ul><li>The NYC Atheists use critical action to take a perspective on social and political issues. The NYCA do this by attending political events. The NYCA also holds brunches where certain topics are discussed to voice solutions . </li></ul>
  • 14. How You can Help <ul><li>CYCA accepts donations </li></ul><ul><li>You can get a membership </li></ul><ul><li>If you have some sort of an artistic skill (i.e. video, cartoonist, graphic artist, etc.), your help will be greatly appreciated. </li></ul>
