Mississippi Gulf Coast Atheist and Freethinking Association Monthly Meetup

 

We meet at Harmony Hall.
[masked]th Avenue, Gulfport MS 39501
(North off Pass Road, about 1/3 mile East of Hwy 49)

 

3 pm MEETUP, 5 pm POTLUCK
Please bring your concerns for discussion and your contributions for dinner.



Suggested topic to start discussion:

Do we need a preacher?  See the CNN clip - about an "Atheist Church":

Ministers make their living by professionally organizing the support of a community of people with shared interests and activities who come together to satisfy their social needs.  How can we organize our group to achieve those satisfactions?


Joint meeting with MS Gulf Coast Humanists :

(You need to enroll to get their announcements.)  Likewise:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/HeartsOfTheSouth/

which does not hold local meetings but invites us to participate in public volunteer events like distributing Thanksgiving dinners to local people in need.

Including inactive and distant members who don't come to meetings our

http://www.meetup.com/atheists-131/

group has about 150 people on the confidential email list.  They add anyone who enrolls on their MeetUP web site and automatically remove people who never RSVP.

Any ideas for program? For future meetings?

Call or e-mail with suggestions.

    See comment by Beverly Davis, at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/msleftleaners/permalink/603180873038741/ about the Moral Monday movement, where she says: "we must build movements, like we did in the 1960s". In my parents' day (I was a child in the 1930s), "The Movement" was family picnics, with speeches on the side. Before that the Populists in the 1890s, the Abolitionists in the 1850s, etc. See:
    The Progressive Revolution: How the Best in America Came to Be
    by Michael Lux (Wiley 1009) ISBN-10:[masked]
    for a detailed historical review.

    I'm new here, I just watched the CNN link posted above & couldn't help but laugh at the male news anchors facial expressions during the entire interview. I'm guessing he's a devout Bible Thumper.
    Also, love the fact that the preacher was smiling through the entire interview, giving the public exactly the opposite of what they expect from an Atheist. :)
