"In Defense of Firebrand Atheism"
David is the irrepressible voice for the equal rights of atheists. He is an inspiring speaker, and a good friend to our secular community here in San Diego. Videos of Mr. Silverman in action are posted on the San Diego Coalition of Reason website.
2013 marks the 50th anniversary of American Atheists. Founded in 1963 by Madelyn Murray O'Hair after her successful battle against mandatory school prayer, the organization is dedicated to working for the civil rights of atheists, promoting separation of state and church, and providing information about atheism.
David will be sharing his insights about social and political action by and for atheists in our country. He will also report on the successes of American Atheists as they take a decidedly more confrontational approach than many organizations that also protect the rights of nonbelievers.
