Iowa is in a unique position to promote separation of church and state because of the amount of press coverage we receive during the election cycle. Sean would like to take advantage of that press coverage and let the world know that there is a large group of Iowans that do _not_ agree with people like Steven King, Rick Santorum and Bob Vander Plaats.
This is an interfaith project that involves not only non-believers such as ourselves but also various religious groups that agree with our view on separation of church and state.
This particular event is part of the interfaith alliance movement and there is a $10 charge, which I believe covers lunch. For people wishing to participate, please RSVP via the link (not the IAF) and let them know at least 48 hours in advance.
I think this is a unique opportunity that has great potential and I encourage those that can to please come to this event.
Also, please help spread the word. Feel free to let everyone know about this event and how important it is to show the world that not all Iowans are members of the religious right.
