Known for her brash and antagonistic nature, O’Hair would later go on to found the American Atheist organization, earning the Life magazine moniker of “The Most Hated Woman in America”. The new film will also appears to demonstrate how organizations (both religious and non-religious) can ultimately buckle under the forces of corruption and greed.
