Comment 16 by  AtheistEgbert :

Who wrote these constitutional statements? What makes them an authority for atheism?

Who said that they were "constitutional"? This is a non-legally binding declaration which is altogether different from a constitution. It merely sets out the aims of the organisation that is the AAI and is subject, like the Copenhagen Declaration before it, to revision.

You can find some background to all this here.
