Despite the majority of population identifying themselves as religious people, there are instances of wrongdoing and injustice that take place in the world every day, and ironically, most of it is carried out in the name of religion. From homosexuals being persecuted to innocents being murdered, from women being subjugated to children being exploited, the list goes on endlessly. However, for several reasons, some that are obvious and some that are not, these tragic stories do not receive the kind of media coverage that they deserve.

That is why at Atheist Republic, an arduous team of bloggers, journalists and editors from across the world find stories related to atrocity, conflict, abuse and inequality and attempt to throw some light on these matters. Despite their core belief in atheism, the team focuses on issues that go far beyond the mere rejection of the existence of deities and archives stories that are for those people who refuse to live within their bubbles and care enough to learn the whole truth about the world at large.

Just because atheism does not find place very often in the media, that does not mean that there isn’t much that is taking place regarding the same. In fact, there is something worthwhile occurring every passing moment. If you are curious to know what is happening to atheists world over and what is being done by those who claim to be religious, Atheist Republic is the one place on the web that will share with you all the stories you need to know. In addition, you can also participate in discussions related to religion and politics on our website while keeping yourself updated with what fellow atheists have to say.
