Re: [bostonatheists] Chris Stedman to talk tomorrow at 7:00 in Concord

> Have you read Chris's book, John? Or  else whereof is your knowledge of his work? I happen to be familiar with PZ's criticism's of the HCH crowd, and find of them depends on misconstrual.

It's a big tent movement, secularism... room enough for all sorts of projects and priorities. What helps most is that we show good will (without ceding the right to constructive criticism) to the people who share our most basic goal.

That goal, for most nonbelievers I know, is not the eradication of religion, but a change in the culture such that atheism is no longer politically and socially devalued.

Would anyone like to propose a date when we could invite Stedman to a BA forum, where he could be subjected to all our various BA questions?
