National group promotes community of non-believers in Michigan

Oct 22, 2013



Members of the group, including our guest Jennifer Beahan, say the purpose of the campaign is to connect with what polls suggest is a growing number of Americans not affiliated with any religion.

Driving around Grand Rapids or Kalamazoo or suburban Detroit you’re apt to see an interesting new billboard.  Alongside smiling, ethnically diverse faces, the boards read: “Millions of Americans are Living Happily Without Religion.”


These billboards and a related website are the work of the secularist organization The Center for Inquiry which is based in New York.  

Jennifer Beahan is the assistant director of the Center's Michigan chapter, and she joins us to discuss the campaign and her organization.
