Many Christians appear to hold to the mistaken belief that atheism is a cheap cop-out. It’s merely a position that’s adopted for the sake of being allowed to live a life freed from any moral authority, it’s assumed. That accusation was even thrown in my face several times by Christians when I was an atheist.
We are Christian women, mothers of college students and college-bound children, who have serious concerns about how the “gender fluidity” movement has taken root at public schools and universities.
