The Pennsylvania Atheist/ Humanist Convention 2014

Hello all,I had a great time at the Pittsburgh DoubleTree Hotel tonight. I met a bunch of great people and had a lot of great conversations.I met too many people to name them all, but I would like to mention that I got to meet Bill and Suzy. They produce a podcast called Bar Room Atheist which I will be checking out very soon. I spoke mostly with Bill. He used to be a sheriff (I think), and he also studied 'the' Bible to become a better Christian.I exchanged stories with lots of nonbelievers,…See More

Recovering from Religion

Posted on August 10, 2014 at 12:36pm 18 Comments

I recently signed up to volunteer for 'Recovering from Religion.' http://recoveringfromreligion.org/

I imagine that most on this site have already heard about, and already have opinions relating to Sunday Assembly.

I'm helping to launch Sunday Assembly in Pittsburgh, PA (USA). For my part, I'm really enjoying it.

It's one thing for atheists to gather and 1) agree that religion is BS, 2) enjoy meeting like-minded people and 3) recover from religious indoctrination. What I like is the regular sense of community that we are…
