CFI featured in Buffalo News article about the rise of the non-religious

Center for Inquiry featured in a new Buffalo News article about the rise of the “nones.”
Dear Friends and Supporters,
The Buffalo News today ran a front page story – Outside faith, a rising tide of 'nones' – about the rise of the non-religious in society. The reporter, Jay Tokasz, visited the Center here in Amherst, New York during our CFI summer institute, (A Secular Summit) aimed at exploring nonbelievers and their cultural impact. On hand for this event were well-known demographers Barry Kosmin, Phil Zuckerman, and Luke Galen. All three have spent a considerable amount of research time analyzing and reporting on the internal characteristics of atheists, agnostics, and humanists. While visiting the Center, Tokasz took the opportunity to interview all three of these experts. As one can tell from reading the article, only Kosmin survived the final editorial cuts. Nonetheless, we hope you will agree that his contribution is an important part of the story. The story also features comments from CFI’s Vice President of Education and Research, John Shook, and an important reference in the final paragraphs to CFI’s presence around the country by way of its Centers and Communities. 
We hope you enjoy reading the piece, which can be found in its entirety here.
Nathan Bupp
