<p>Kyra Phillips promoted her upcoming documentary on atheism on the 23 March 2015 edition of <i>CNN Tonight</i> by asserting that &quot;there&#39;s such a stigma on that word &#39;atheist.&#39; People think devil worshiper &ndash; no moral compass.&quot; Phillips underlined how &quot;there was a time where they just used the word &#39;atheist.&#39; And now, you are hearing &#39;humanist,&#39; &#39;nons,&#39; &#39;skeptics,&#39; &#39;free-thinkers.&#39;..this is all the same thing. These are people that don&#39;t believe in God. They&#39;re just scared to say the word.&quot;</p>
