    Wonderful talk by Sean Faircloth with an action plan to help take religious bias out of lawmaking. So good to meet all of you and reconnect with those I've met before. I love the Heretic House!

    Very lucid speaker. He just may have the approach we need to take to halt and hopefully reverse our descent into theocracy.

    It was great. He is a very dynamic speaker. He will be speaking at "The Assembly" tomorrow in Hlwd. I will be there as I like being around other atheists. I enjoyed meeting him in person and I will buy his book "Attack Of The Theocrats" as soon as I can afford it. Bobbie's historic home is fantastic.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
