Atheists get an audience at the White House

In a counterpoint to the post below on the theocratic coup attempt going on in my state, this is a real change. In fact it's another historic first.
White House officials will this morning meet with leaders of the atheist community, who will discuss their concerns about the "privileging of religion" by the government "that harms real people," in the words of Sean Faircloth, executive director of the Secular Coalition of America.
I suspect it will turn out to be more symbolic than productive in terms of policy, but it's good to see the government acknowledge that non-Christians should have a voice too.
