5. Ellen Johnson

Ellen Johnson has been President of American Atheists since 1995. A self-described New Jersey "soccer mom," Johnson heads what is often described as the most militantly anti-religion and activist atheist organization in the U.S. Johnson organized the Godless Americans March on Washington in 2002, which drew 2,000 atheists to protest increasing religious rhetoric in the public sphere, and she formed the Godless Americans Political Action Committee to endorse political candidates who believe in the separation of church and state. Johnson hosts the cable access show "The Atheist Viewpoint" and is a frequent guest on nationally-televised talk shows and news programs, where she debates religious leaders and politicians about church-state issues.
