    It is always rewarding to hear from someone on the front lines in resisting Christian bullying. Maggie Garrett fit the bill. I agree with Ed's positive comment on her and negative comment on the room temperature and noise. Maggie spoke loudly enough, but participants didn't all seem as cognizant that the whole room needed to hear them, not just Maggie. Overall, a worthwhile experience!

      We are looking into both solving these presentation problems and alternate meeting sites.

    Maggie is truly knowledgeable on the issues of AU and is a good speaker. Would like to see more of her.

    It was too cold, crowd noise at times interfered with hearing her--but Maggie Garrett was superb. She spoke at length, w/ minimum notes, obvious in depth knowledge and understanding, and with a lively, sympathetic, engaging manner throughout. She's a huge credit to AU, one of our favorite organizations. Thanks!

    A big job I was expecting came in. Alas. I'll have to skip this one.

    I'll TRY to attend, but don't hold me to it. I'm in the middle of a large design project and may have to attend to that.

    My wife, Miriam, and I look forward to attending. It will be so satisfying to hear from one of the persons who shoulder church/state separation endeavors for us all. BTW, sorry in my previous entry I was confused about what the entry was to be about (i.e., not me!).

    I believe that people should not inject their religious believes into the government and likewise the government should inject itself into people's religious believes.

    The religious right in conjunction with the Republican party has waged war on numerous groups of people, including all women, all people of all races other than white. Isn't it time we make sure that these people are aware of the fact that when they vote for a Republican they are voting against their own interests. This is not just a statement from an avowed liberal progressive this can be researched from the Republican Party platform, from Republican's statements made during election campaigns on national TV and in News Papers and magazines.

      Hi Terrell, As a socially active non-profit, AU affiliates cannot engage in politicking. We can loudly voice our concerns and act against those issues that entwine religion with our government. We have, thru negotiations, lobbying, and successful law suits, protected our liberties from theocratic attacks. We cannot, however, point fingers at political groups telling our members who to vote for. When a political group encourages bad actions we can loudly discourage those actions and point out our reasoning without focusing on the offending group itself. We can bring this up to Ms. Garrett when she comes to our meet-up.
