In December 2012, McAfee published Mom, Dad, I’m an Atheist: The Guide to Coming Out as a Non-Believer.
McAfee is an outspoken atheist who opposes biblical literalism. He is a columnist for Canadian Freethinker Magazine and a contributor to American Atheist Magazine. As a result of his atheist activism, he was rejected by a public university from entering its religious studies graduate program. His first published book, Disproving Christianity and Other Secular Writings, is a critique of biblical literalism. McAfee’s newest title, Mom, Dad, I’m an Atheist, is a guide to living as an atheist in a society that’s largely intolerant of disbelief.

“Not only do I believe that it is possible to maintain moral standards without the crutch of religion- but I would argue that it is the only way to achieve true goodness. Free from the constraints of organized religion, a human being is able to express true decency from one’s self- as opposed to attempting to appease whatever higher power he or she may believe in. Personal spirituality is to be admired, but the biases and closed-mindedness spawned by all religions have acted negatively on each and every society throughout history.” –David G. McAfee
