Apologize for anti-atheist discrimination

This petition had 521 supporters

The Wyndgate Country Club cancelled an event sponsored by the Center For Inquiry - Michigan after learning that the event's featured speaker, internationally renowned biologist Richard Dawkins, is an atheist.

In a phone call to CFI–Michigan Assistant Director Jennifer Beahan, The Wyndgate’s representative explained that the owner did not wish to associate with individuals such as Dawkins, or his philosophies.

Although privately owned, The Wyndgate's facilities are open to the public for special events and occasions. According to Title II of the Federal Civil Rights Law of 1964, “open to the public” means “all persons shall be entitled to the full and equal enjoyment of the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, and accommodations of any place of public accommodation, as defined in this section, without discrimination or segregation on the ground of race, color, religion, or national origin.”
