It doesn’t take a whole lot to represent yourself well when you’re an atheist being interviewed on television. Just follow a few basic rules:
Don’t be unnecessarily contentious.
Know your stuff.
Need an example? I just saw a high school student model it beautifully.
Dawn Sherman was on a local television talk show talking about her role in getting the mandatory moment of silence banned from Illinois public schools.
To see the clip, go here and under the video player click on “GML: Moment of Silence Unconstitutional?”
You may want to take notes.
(The host, Garrard McClendon, kinda freaks me out… but that’s another story.)
