  • History of the Organization: The group is recently formed of people that have missed the boat on the ideal of being a skeptic. Instead of rigorous examination of claims they are rejecting any claims that do not fit their atheistic viewpoint. It is not enough that they do not believe. They contend, like religionists the world over, that you cannot believe either. Don't show them the facts they know the TRUTH!

    They openly reject any claims of clerical magic being from any kind of god and will argue til blue in the face that the god part is pure delusion.

    Their common call is "Freedom from Religion" and they wave the establishment clause like a flag. In their opinion that means they never have to even look at religion. This puts them in the same class as HUFF and Mothers Against Everything as as group of constantly offended people. Of course they ignore the clause that comes right after it guaranteeing free practice of religion.

    The group constantly agitates, in public protests or in court for the removal of religious symbols or practices from public life. They commonly demand that religious people "Prove God exists". Sooner or later that will bite their ass.

  • Bureau File: Keep an eye on this one. So far they have been loud and litigious, but not violent. As magic becomes more evident and more a part of public life that could change. Reason is not one of their tools. Logic is, and they will call it reason, but there isn't any reason. They are operating from a broken set of assumption and that will be trouble.
