The Secular Student Alliance Facebook page is getting a boost today after student leader Kenny Flagg posted this image:
If you don’t already Like them, you should!
And if you were thinking about giving a donation, there’s no better time to do it. SSA member Ron Verstappen is offering a $20,000 matching grant!

I’d be there in a heartbeat if I weren’t anti-FB. You’ve got my “like” in spirit, so to speak.
Whats the ratio in each group of actual students to “other” people liking it because they support it. My first thought is that I am not a student and should there fore not like it as that would be disingenuous.
It’s past 15,000 now…
Kenny is kinda becoming a big deal isn’t he.
That’s a good point, but I’m sure that the CCC/Cru page has thousands of likes from non-students. I don’t think it’s disingenuous at all.
Some people might have joined one of those groups simply to heckle members who support them. Those folks skew the numbers.
I closed my Facebook account months ago (now using Google +, the “better Facebook”) but I’ll open it again long enough to vote for SSA!
Clearly college kids are not far removed from high school.
Apparently, college kids are not that far removed from high school.
A “like” contest? Really?
