RRS in Ontario, Canada
Hi all, this is the message I have been sending out via myspace for my RRS chapter in Ontario, Canada. I'm posting it here in case anyone who is not on myspace, would be interested. I'm at http://www.myspace.com/ontariorrs
My name is Ed and I’m the founder of a chapter of the Rational Response Squad for Ontario, you can check them out at http://www.rationalresponders.com/ . I’m sending you this message because I searched for atheists in my area and your myspace profile came up. Please check out my chapter profile and join if it interests you.
Why am I doing this? If you watch the embedded video at http://www.cbc.ca/bigpicture/evil.html or directly at http://www.cbc.ca/bigpicture/media/evil_debate.mov after about 25 minutes, you get a taste of what will be happening in Canada soon. The websites for the groups mentioned are
National house of prayer http://www.nhop.ca/en/index.html
The Institute of marriage and family http://www.imfcanada.org/Default.aspx?cat=0
Equipping Christians for the public square center http://ecpcenter.org/a-philosophy.php
The inspiration for these groups is a man from America called Ralph Reed, one of the founders of the religious right, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ralph_E._Reed_Jr .
The religious right is coming to Canada. They intend to use legislation to impose their theistic values on everybody. It is therefore necessary to form a counterbalance of atheists who want to prevent such a thing from happening
What I’d like to do right now, is to have people add my chapter to their friends list, eventually after we get enough members, get together for coffee socially or have a party, if you have any ideas, I’d love to hear them.
Take care and I hope to hear from you soon.
