Hi Paul,

Meetup Description: An interview with Paul Storey about the Freedom From Religion Foundation billboard "Imagine No Religion" recently put up on Folsom Ave in Sacramento will be shown at 10pm tonight, Monday, 9 Feb. Let's check it out! I talked about church state separation, the Inquisition, Luther and the Protestant revolt, Islamic states, no mention of god in the Constitution, the establishment clause in the Bill of Rights, U.S. demographics of 15% atheist agnostic or non believer compared to 14% Hispanic and 13% black, lack of religious based morality and ethics based for overpopulation, ozone depletion, global warming, Bush's policies of no condoms to prevent spread of AIDs in Africa, no funding of international family planning, abstinance only sex education, no stem cell research. Then I was asked and answered a lot of questions about my feelings toward religious people and institutions. How much will they run? Hmmmmmmmm. Could be good.

Thanks for doing the interview.  You mentioned some excellent points.  I'm not at all surprised that they cut your interview short and left out your best defenses on a segment called "Faith Matters".  That being said, clearly the sign is working, otherwise it wouldn't have made it on the news.  Also I'm glad to have such a cool billboard so close to my house (I live near 62nd and Folsom). 

In God we? Sorry, just reading some of our ridiculous non precious metal-based currency.
