Atheist leaders have been celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the release of Richard Dawkins' best-seller The God Delusion, credited for leading "countless" of people away from faith.
"It was 10 years ago today when Richard Dawkins' book The God Delusion was first published in the U.K.," wrote Hemant Mehta of The Friendly Atheist blog on Sunday.
"The book went on to sell more than 3 million copies and, anecdotally, led countless people away from the religions of their youth. In fact, you could argue that The God Delusion has created more atheists than any other book in history … with the sole exception being the Bible," he argued. more >>
A new organization is tackling the "fundamental sin" in American prisons by building unlikely alliances and calling the Church to engage prisoners as human beings, not "throwaway people."
The Christian Post sat down recently with Steven Hawkins, president of The Coalition for Public Safety, to explore how the Church can become more involved in addressing the injustices in our nation's prisons.

Jason Benham of conservative Christian activists the Benham brothers, is speaking out against an online video that teaches children "some people aren't born boys or girls." Benham is urging pastors to speak out against such "nonsense" that seeks to "brainwash" kids.
"Watch this video and tell me [if] it doesn't make you mad," Benham said in a Facebook video, sharing footage of the online video that teaches children about transgenderism.
In the video, a person in a blonde wig speaks to a teddy bear and says, "Well teddy, did you know that some people aren't boys or girls?" and goes on to claim that "there are also people who are trans, or transgender." more >>
Norway has passed a new law that allows children as young as 6 to self-identify as the opposite sex and change their gender identity on official documents. So far, 10 children have applied to do so and the country hasn't refused a single one.
The Norwegian Parliament passed the legislation in June by a vote of 79-13, and "generated little controversy when it was introduced," The Associated Press reported on Tuesday.
As long as they have parental consent, children living in Norway can change their gender identity simply by filling out a form online. more >>
A-list actor and filmmaker Tom Hanks made a couple's wedding day very special last week when he took a detour from his jog through Central Park to congratulate the bride and groom while they posed for their wedding photos.
