Bill O'Reilly found himself in quite a heated exchange back in November 2012 when Dave was a guest on O'Reilly's Fox News program to discuss what he called "this year's Christmas controversy situation," and those who oppose public displays of the holiday. Check out it out at the link above.

    David gave a very spirited defense of "Firebrand Atheism" - what it is and what it isn't - backed up with an excellent Power Point. He was funny, optimistic, motivating and inspiring. He emphasized telling the truth and seeing theists, not as the enemy, but as the victims of a hoax who need our honesty and our help. He was tough and uncompromising, but compassionate and practical. It was a great night!

    he went for the bait and got pissed at O'Reily that's too bad because he makes an otherwise good case for secularism

    From Debbie Allen: $10 general, $23 reserved. Tix can be purchased at the UCSD box office - soon - or online (for a fee of $5). HFSD will be buying tickets in bulk so we can avoid some of the fees.

    This is not a free event. I just wanted to get it posted so that people could "save the date". I will update with how to purchase tickets when that information becomes available on www.sdcor.org.
