Quilliam Foundation – A Counter Extremism Think Tank

I just found out about this very worthy non profit called the Quilliam Foundation. The organization describes itself as:

…the world’s first counter-extremism think tank set up to address the unique challenges of citizenship, identity, and belonging in a globalised world. Quilliam stands for religious freedom, equality, human rights and democracy.

As an atheists who supports a secular state and the freedom to believe what you want, I am happy to see such an organization exists. I urge you to visit their site.
