It's obvious, but it's nice to finally see news media point it out.  Religions are at least as much the source of persecution as they are the subject.

This sounds like a brilliant idea to me. Increase the number of seats in the House of Representatives to make each individual less powerful and more, well, representative. And keep them living in their home district by conducting congressional business electronically.

As much as I hate the bigotry that often festers within religious institutions, I can still appreciate the beautiful things that come out of religions when they're done right. I'm looking for examples of atheistic or agnostic organizations doing it right. My best example is some Unitarian-Universalist churches which offer "sermons" about community and personal enlightenment without the message of hate toward others.
