Can atheist organizations work together?

When my husband and I left religion behind for good, we did not seek out an alternative community. We didn’t explore more liberal churches such as the Unitarian Universalists.

  Raine Eisler’s book, The Chalice and the Blade, written in 1998, has sold more than a million copies attesting to its quality and perhaps its uniqueness.
