Hi Rebekah,

Congrats and welcome. I live in Lexington. There are a few atheist/secular humanist groups that meet regularly in Lexington if you are interested.

Hi All.  Newly Atheist....and lovin' it.  I'd really like to chat with anyone in the Frankfort/Lexington Area.

With so much discouraging and disheartening news these days, it’s good to have the following story to share. 


SOMERSET, KENTUCKY — Pulaski County has paid $231,662 to cover its share of costs in a legal battle the county lost over attempts to post copies of the Ten Commandments in the courthouse.

@Douglas
I went to Cumberland College in the '90s, but I was a Christian back then so I didn't know of any atheists. Several of my classmates have since become marginally agnostic, but I'm the only professed atheist I know of. Odds are you're not alone, just in a very conservative part of the world. I don't exactly live in Sweden myself.

Hey! Looking for Atheist/Freethinkers in the Whitley/Knox/Laurel Counties area. I can't be the only "Citizen of Reason" in the area.

It is almost time for the Kentucky State Fair, and the second Kentucky Secular Society State Fair booth! A major theme of our booth is that atheists are normal, decent, good people, and than plenty of us live right here in Kentucky. We are currently looking for short statements from Kentuckians explaining why you are an atheist, freethinkers, humanist, etc (you get the idea) that we can hand out to visitors to our booth. Please keep it to 300 words or less, and specify if you would like your first or last name displayed, email, phone or anything like that. If you would like to be anonymous, that is fine too. 

 

The fair starts on August 18, so please send your story to me as soon as possible if you would like it to be included!

I also wanted to mention that with the help of Americans United we were able to get the Warren County Jailer to remove a cross and the greeting "Happy Easter" from the Jailer's county, taxpayer-funded website. Thanks, AU!

National Day of Prayer - May 5:  I have noted via their website National Day of Prayer Events that there are a number of these evangelical Christian prayer events taking place INSIDE public, taxpayer-supported places, like City Halls, Courthouses, etc.  Now, we cannot stop them from praying in their own churches or even outside, but we can - and should object - to them having exclusionary Christian events in facilities which need to be strictly secular. Please check their website and contact their coordinators to let them know your opinion. Doesn't hurt to mention that - if you are - a member of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State OR the Freedom From Religion Foundationas doing so tendency to scare them.
