March 24–The Reason Rally in Washington DC is being promoted as a kind of Woodstock for atheists and skeptics. I hope to meet deconverted people there en masse! I feel nervous about going because so many people there are going to be bashing religion and making “friends” based on a sense of victimhood and shared prejudice towards Christians.
That said, others will be there looking for a good time. I will be there with a big bag of books to distribute! Shameless publicity hounding? You decide!
I hope to meet as many people as I can and make some friends. One day perhaps I will be more involved with the Rally.
I have begun working on a 2nd book called FUNDIE: how fundamentalism splinters lives, families and communities. i may tweak the title but this book will be a superior read to Preacher Boy and more topical.
