Atheists Needed . . . September 21 . . . Lynchburg, VA
On Friday, September 21, John Rankin will be speaking at Liberty University in response to the "The New Atheism".
The topic is: "Christianity and 'The New Atheism'": Answers for Today's Skeptics including Dawkins, Hitchens, Harris, The Rational Response Squad, and The Blasphemy Challenge.
The organizers are interested in inviting the RRS (or a RRS sanctioned representative) to take the stage with Rankin and defend/debate their views and challenge the students.
This is a unique audience in that there will be fence-sitters there -- the demographic that politicians and religious proselytizers drool over. It'd be a shame to let Rankin speak unchecked..
This event is open to all. Afterwards, we'll claim a pub as a freethinker safety zone and unwind/debrief with some cold brew. : ) For those considering taking the stage, I can put you up. I have a big loft downtown.
