Hey Josh. Sorry you were denied at the parade, but great exposure.  Way to go.

Hey, everyone!

Just thought you'd be interested to know - KCAC tried to enter itself as a member of the parade but, because we're atheists, we were denied the chance to participate in the parade. You can see more about the story here:

http://www.kmbc.com/KC-atheist-group-turned-away-from-St-Patrick-s-Day-parade/-/11664900/19274338/-/e41m6z/-/index.html#.UT5mzU-fgqg.facebook

If you're interested, we'll be doing an "Ask an Atheist" event the day-of to try and help get rid some of these nasty preconceptions that prevent us from participating in community events like these. ;)

You can find the event on Meetup with the Midtown group:
