A few years ago, a study from the University of Minnesota identified the “least trusted” group of people in our society. Other studies have identified the same group of people as the least likely to be supported in runs for elected office. And a new report finds this group faces the highest level of religious discrimination worldwide. Can you guess the group of people? It’s atheists, humanists and others who choose to reject religious faith. Joining Welton on this week’s show is Matt Cherry, International Representative and Regional Coordinator for the Americas, at the International Humanist and Ethical Union, and editor of a new report, Freedom of Thought 2012: A Global Report on Discrimination Against Humanists, Atheists and the Non-religious, available onlineClick here for extended interview video and transcript.
