Members of Metal Band Nightwish Explain Why They’re “Openly Secular”

Following in the footsteps of Rep. Barney Frank, Penn & Teller, Bill Maher and several others, members of the symphonic metal band Nightwish have recorded a video explaining why they’re “openly secular”:

That video is cooler than I will ever be.

The band members, Tuomas Holopainen and Troy Donockley, said in a statement:

We feel it vital to speak out in retaliation and show our solidarity with freethinkers the world over: those who are proud to search for answers by themselves. Honest challenge is a wonderful liberation, and we prefer to embrace our wonderful world through the factual revelations of science and reason.

This is all for the Openly Secular campaign, which is urging people to come out as non-theistic to at least one person on April 23.
