Nontheistic Celebration

Dan Savage Named Humanist Of The Year

Over the weekend, Dan Savage was honored by the American Humanist Association (AHA). The author and activist was named the 2013 Humanist of the Year for his advocacy of separation of church and state and work with LGBTQ youth.

The AHA is a nontheistic organization striving “to bring about a progressive society where being good without a god is an accepted way to live life.” The author was present at the ceremony in San Diego, CA where he received his award.

Meanwhile, Savage just released a new book, American Savage: Insights, Slights, and Fights on Faith, Sex, Love, and Politics, a collection of provocative essays on fatherhood, gun control and marriage equality.
