Michael Brown's funeral has been set for Monday, Aug. 25 in St. Louis, Missouri, his family's attorney announced; it will be a public funeral with national figures taking part in order to remind people why there are protests being held in Ferguson.

Notable atheist author and intellectual Richard Dawkins has recently claimed that nonviolent religious believers enable acts of violent extremism by being "nice."
While speaking at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, Dawkins blamed "nice Muslims, nice Christians" for acts of religious terrorism.
