This is from the American Humanist Association:
This morning, Roy Speckhardt, the executive director of the American Humanist Association (AHA), sent a petition to Target, the retail giant. Humanists and allies added their voices to the chorus of those asking Target to bring back a “Humanist” pillow that was recalled last month with no satisfactory explanation.
An excerpt of the petition is below:
Barring any clear explanation for the product recall, the AHA is left to assume that the removal of this product was based on religiously motivated discrimination. This is especially concerning given the availability of a pillow at Target displaying the proud Christian sentiment: “Raised on Sweet Tea and Jesus,” among other religious home décor products. With nearly a quarter of Americans claiming no religion, how can Target justify silencing a non-religious ethical viewpoint?

The American Humanist Association (AHA) works to protect the rights of humanists, atheists, and other nontheistic Americans. The AHA advances the ethical and life-affirming worldview of humanism, which—without beliefs in gods or other supernatural forces—encourages individuals to live informed and meaningful lives that aspire to the greater good of humanity.
