Ableism in Atheism Anonymous #45
Do you consider yourself to be a person with a disability?
Have you (or do you personally know someone who has) felt out-of-place or limited your involvement with an atheist community because of disability-related situations?
What steps could atheist communities take to become more inclusive?
Consider the disabled as an asset to input regarding the rejection of religion. Many people tend to gravitate toward religion when they feel inferior to the rest of society in some fashion, and many people born disabled are told that God has some mysterious plan for them. I personally would love to hear what disabled Atheists have to say about how their rejection of religion has been affected by their disability.
