Atheist of the Day: Nina Hartley
The documentation of her atheism, however, is quite straightforward. I'll just quote from the defunct Celebrity Atheist List, still with us thanks to the Google Cache version:
"...I would like to know about Jewish religion as history, but as an atheist, I see no reason to practice any religion... because it is organized superstition...the opiate of the masses.""Opiate of the masses"? Can you tell she was raised in Berkeley in the 60's? More from Celebrity Atheist List:
From an interview found at her website:
Do you believe in god? Do you have a religion?
No, I don't believe in God. I was raised with no religion, but a lot of morals. I definitely think that sex is natural and healthy, and that people have the absolute right to pursue their sexual preferences with other consenting adults without government or church intervention. I can do what I do to share my enjoyment of sex with all my viewers out there. If I can help any person or persons have a great sex session, then I've done a good job! I believe that society changes and that we can take what is good from the world's religions and leave behind what isn't so good, and forge a new say. I'm one of the forgers, I like to think!
