At the moment, sheltered in place, I'm helping with social media, collaborating with group founders, and will respond to requests for discussion/questions. We'll be in Vegas this July tabling at FreedomFest and the upcoming Better Discourses conference.
When the group launched, we got a seal of approval from PZ Myers who doesn't like the Enlightenment: http://archive.is/MFmSI
The values of the Enlightenment, as exemplified by Locke, include revoking all protections of law for atheists. Muslims as well, of course, but this is not so directly hypocritical for a group calling itself Atheists for Liberty. Tolerance is a privilege earned by being sufficiently Christian, which in other passages he clarifies must also mean non-Catholic.
The values of Atheists for Liberty, then, include the value that atheists should have no liberty. It is a stunning, nauseating confirmation that “classical liberals” and other arrogantly ignorant participants in Atheists for Liberty and other groups, formal or informal, that share its creed are interested in Enlightenment values in exactly the same way that 21st century heterosexist are interested in the book of Exodus.
PZ also wasn't happy to see Shermer and Peter Boghossian on the advisory board.Atheists for Freedom and their heroes both endorse the common horrors of their respective ages, nibbling away at the shadows of injustice only when it gets so close to themselves that they fear those horrors might be able to use that cover to assault them. “Freedom just big enough for me” is the catchy refrain inked over 300 years ago that Atheists for Freedom sing in their showers today.
