Only in America: No atheists allowed

An anti-abortion advocate is turned away from volunteer work because she is an atheist — and more in our collection of strange revelations about the nation

An anti-abortion activist eager to volunteer at a Washington, D.C., crisis pregnancy center was turned away for being an atheist.

Terzo says nine other anti-abortion organizations would not let atheists volunteer either.
