 Earlier this month at a mayoral forum, the current mayor of San Antonio, TX, Ivy Taylor, was asked by a representative of SA Christian Hope Resource Center what she saw as the deepest systemic causes of generational poverty. Her answer was disappointing. “Since you’re with the Christian Coalition, I’ll go ahead and put it out there that to me, it’s broken people, you know, people not being in a good relationship with their Creator and therefore, not being in a good relationship with their families and their communities and, you know, not being productive members of society, so, I mean, I think that’s the ultimate answer though that's not something I work on from my position as mayor of the community though, I try to be an example."

Dear Mayor Taylor:

After hearing your recent comments connecting systemic poverty to “people not being in a relationship with their creator,” the South Texas Atheists for Reason (STAR) would like to share some of the work atheists are doing in San Antonio to build strong relationships in our families and our communities. Far from being “broken people” who are not “productive members of society,” STAR is a thriving group dedicated to learning, service, and community!

Earlier this month at a mayoral forum, the current mayor of San Antonio, TX, Ivy Taylor, was asked by a representative of SA Christian Hope Resource Center what she saw as the deepest systemic causes of generational poverty. Her answer was disappointing. “Since you’re with the Christian Coalition, I’ll go ahead and put it out there that to me, it’s broken people, you know, people not being in a good relationship with their Creator and therefore, not being in a good relationship with their families and their communities and, you know, not being productive members of society, so, I mean, I think that’s the ultimate answer though that's not something I work on from my position as mayor of the community though, I try to be an example."

Despite the fact that she followed up with other more reasonable causes such as inequality in education and teen pregnancy, the fact that her initial response was to call people who believe differently than her “broken” is troubling, to say the least, and despite her insistence that it doesn’t play a role in her work, the fact that she announced it at a public forum says otherwise.

Atheists, humanists, and non-believers are not “broken people.” We simply believe something different, no more, no less, and we are every bit as capable of doing good things as anyone else.
