Good News Club Book Discussion - WITH AUTHOR!

UPDATE: It turns out that Katherine Stewart is not going to be able to attend the Colorado Secular Conference because of health concerns. This Friday event is still going to happen, and two of the other fabulous speakers from the conference will be in attendance instead!

Sean Faircloth is the author of Attack of the Theocrats! How the Religious Right Harms Us All — and What We Can Do About Itand is also the Director of Strategy and Policy for the Richard Dawkins Foundation. Seth Andrews is the host of the popular website and podcast The Thinking Atheist, and the author ofDeconverted: a journey from religion to reason.

We'll still discuss Katherine's book, The Good News Club: The Christian Right's Stealth Assault on America's Children as well as the books of these authors. Seth will do some filming around the Secular Hub and we'll have a casual discussion about all things secular. You'll have your chance to meet with some of the speakers from the conference and get psyched up for an absolutely amazing conference the very next day!

Note: This is also your last chance to buy advanced tickets at the website before the price increase to $25 at the door!

    It's not that they have an after-school program. It's that they intentionally blur the lines between school officials and their program. In some cases it has been reported that the after-school program teacher will volunteer as a teaching aide in the classroom so she could make it seem more like the things she was teaching after school was what the public school promoted. This is the problem with this group. Children are becoming confused with the public school teaches and what the after-school program is teaching. I know I have stated this before but, while I don't like to get involved with discussions on here, I will not tolerate name calling or bullying. It's childish.

    I don't know Stewart's precise approach, but I tend to agree with Orson. I think atheists could better spend their time on other public school problems involving religion, such as KidsHopeUSA and corporal punishment.

    I find it hard to be interested in the fact that "Christians" are being, well Christian after school. I was in after school physics club, astronomy club, and debate. In fact, I'm going to say that I object to Stewart's breathless attack on equal community use of school places after (state funded) school time. She's being disingenuous - and I loath Dumb Atheists who either don't understand the free exercise of constitutional rights under the First Amendment, or else maliciously attack or undermine this fundamental American right.
