Atheists to meet with Administration at the White House – BUT NO OBAMA!

Speaking as an atheist, this really bothers me. The President seems to have time for every religious group out there – despite the fact that their beliefs, and hence their political causes, are based on unprovable mythology – but not with those of logical and provable ideologies.

A clip from McClachy:

President Barack Obama has burnished his Christian credentials, courted Jewish support and preached outreach toward Muslims. On Friday, his administration will host a group that fits none of the above: America’s nonbelievers.
The president isn’t expected to make an appearance at the meeting with the Secular Coalition for America or to unveil any new policy as a result of it.
Instead, several administration officials will sit down quietly for a morning meeting at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on the White House campus with about 60 workhorses from the coalition’s 10 member groups, including the American Atheists and the Council for Secular Humanism. Tina Tchen, the director of the White House Office of Public Engagement, and representatives from the Justice and Health and Human Services departments will participate.
On the agenda are three policy areas: child medical neglect, military proselytizing and faith-based initiatives.
