A Gathering for Atheists in South Dakota

Outside of religious politicians trying to push their faith on everyone else, we don’t hear much news out of South Dakota on this site. But here’s something for the atheists in the area: There’s going to be a statewide meeting for atheists and skeptics in the city of Chamberlain on Saturday, April 20th!

Believe it or not, there are several atheist groups in the state and they’re going to try and form a Coalition of Reason (with accompanying billboard) that day.

If you live in the state, mark off that date on your calendar and make plans to attend. All the details can be found here.

    The third link in this sentence goes to the website for the Secular Student Alliance at Colorado School of Mines. You might want to correct that.

    Um, it’s on the weekend, and in South Dakota women aren’t permitted, by law, to think on the weekends.
