"Faith no more: a skeptic rejects what cannot be proved."
In August 2015, Milwaukee Magazine launched a redesigned edition of their monthly publication. Among the changes to graphics were also changes in content, featuring more in-depth, "impactful" content - as requested by their readers.
And in the launch edition, one of those "impactful" pieces of content includes a risky perspective article by now-openly atheist Mario Quadracci titled, "Faith No More: A skeptic rejects what cannot be proved."
In the article, Quadracci regales his "fall from faith" story and stands up for what he believes in (or, rather, doesn't). He encourages those who have been fearful of coming out as secular and tells readers not to be afraid - that the numbers of secularists in our city are growing and they are not alone.
Among proof that our numbers are growing? Mythicist Milwaukee and our own Mythinformation Conference - which also was mentioned in the article:
The magazine took a risk publishing an openly secular article such as Quadracci's and we here at Mythicist Milwaukee are grateful to see an opinion piece such as this covered in a mainstream publication. We strive to contribute to a world free from religious oppression and bigotry and truly believe that sharing opinions like Mario's are one step in the right direction. Please show your support by commenting on or sharing the original article or e-mailing the editor at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see more like it in the future!
