What the Boss Likes – PA State Atheist/Humanist Conference, Harrisburg Crowne Plaza, September 28-20, 2012

Freedom for all

A bit on the side of short notice, I’ve just discovered that the local atheist and free-thought groups in Pennsylvania are having a conference here in the state’s capitol the end of September this year. They have an excellent list of speakers.

I’m not a member of any of the local groups, not being that comfortable around people (anxiety is a bitch), but I do happily support them with letters to the editor, etc. I’m also a member of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, who are one of the sponsors for this event.  So, I may not go myself, but I do want people to know about the conference.  It’s worth going to this in a state where we have legislators declaring a “year of the bible”, creationists trying to force their personal version of their religion on public school students, Governor “Close your eyes” Corbett, et al trying to force their religious views on women and their health care, etc.  Pennsylvania was one of the first thirteen colonies and is one of the places that freedom “rung” first. 

It’s close enough for our friends in surrounding states to come too!  And I promise, we have lots of good places to eat.
