And contrary to the two claims I saw here, FWIW, most atheists I know say they also came to the conclusion unexpectedly. I think that one who 'chooses' to believe in something is talking themselves into believing. They've decided that this bait looks mighty tasty right now and I'm going to take it. Then they proceeded to swallow it as they learn about how to fit the new 'belief' into their lifestyle over a course of time.
For me the conclusion had already been made before its ramifications became clear to me. I did not need study to disbelieve. The evidence I'd accepted had already created the lack of belief within me.

We need a movement which confronts organizations like the Democratic party which claim to be the champions of equality. But first, we must raise the issue to the public.

Still they should be held responsible to try. Usually it is rationality applied to real world situations and a wider public secular view which ultimately gets all the religious to.soften their views. Perhaps public mass protest by them, as used against the Westboro Baptist Church with other Christians participating which brings other extremists to their senses if not members of that congregation.
In the Muslim world this approach is obviously much more difficult.

If nothing else, Bernie will go to the convention representing nearly half of the Democratic party which is a lot of leverage to shape the party’s platform. If the Democrats want unity within the party and put a lot of his platform integrated into the Democrats policies moving forward (for what that is worth). If they don't want that unity, well at least a lot of people will know where they stand with their establishment.
