Well done Rep. Juan Mendez, Serah Blain and the Secular Coalition for Arizona!

We have an Atheist Representative in the Arizona State legislature, we have national coverage from USA Today, Salon, and Huffington Post but if you want the best coverage you have to go to The Friendly Atheist with the inside scoop. Much more attention is sure to come as more outlets pick it up.  

None of this would have been possible if it hadn’t been for the wonderful, tireless work of SerahBlain and the Secular Coalition for Arizona.

The horrible hold that the religious right have had on our state government, lead mostly by the Center forArizona Policy (the AZ branch of Focus on the Family) is losing its grip, slowly but surely. They are on the defensive and they are going to lose. Antiquated, and minority opinions about what we should legislate about regarding sex, marriage, women’s healthcare, religious ‘liberty’, and every other bigoted, predatory, privileged and religiously motivated stand is going to lose footing as reason and compassion gain footing in Arizona and in the country once again.

Serah spoke about this work eloquently in front of the capital building at the Unite Against the War on Women Rally last summer She and her coalition are getting it done!
