Atheists United replies

In response to an article by a rabbi who thinks that tech companies (e.g., Silicon Valley) need to hire chaplains-- the source of moral reasoning, Atheists United notes that the Rabbi failed to cite the success of chaplains in the country's oldest workplace : RJ Reynolds Tobacco.  RJ Reynolds has had the program since 1949. Perhaps the chaplains there, over the years, helped the employees deal with their feelings of guilt over the deaths they caused and the lies they told.

If Silicon Valley needs to provide on-the job counseling, they should hire trained psychologists and social workers.

Community Service

Atheists United supports the community by sponsoring the highway cleanup of the Glendale (2) freeway and now we have another location on the 10 freeway in West Los Angeles.  We will post on Meetup.com as to the time and where we will meet so that only one car goes onto the freeway.  It is important to be on time.  Also, on Meetup.com please RSVP so that if there is a last minute change we can contact you.

Adopt-A-Highway,  blood drives, and helping the homeless are programs that can always  use more volunteers to help!  Contact [email protected] to volunteer for these programs.  And feel free to suggest and/or coordinate programs that  serve the public good in ways that are exemplary of our values.
