BWG: Breeding While Godless

Even the Drumstir concedes, we atheists may be facing a problem...
Hey, remember that post last week where I suggested that we atheists "don't suffer much serious social ostracism"? Well, it turns out that was pretty stupid. Andrew Sullivan reports:

Eugene Volokh has just written a law article on how atheist fathers and mothers are routinely discriminated against in child custody cases. He cites over 70 recent cases across the country — and these were only the ones which were appealed, so they probably represent a fraction of the actual cases.

Ever the stiff-upper-lipped moderate, he maintains that this "isn't exactly a sign of the apocalypse (so to speak), but it's still pretty discouraging[.]"

I'd say, Kevin.
