South Carolina Atheist Leader Offers, on eBay, a Chance to Send Her to Church

Eve Brannon, president of the Upstate Atheists in South Carolina, is offering Christians a chance to send her to church by bidding on eBay. (Whoa. Déjà vu.)

Your bid is for me and my 4 year old daughter. She must be able to stay with me at all times. We will attend any church on a Sunday morning. We will listen to the sermon and I agree to be acknowledged as a guest. I will speak to members of the congregation if you wish and what led me to the path I chose. I’m fine with speaking publicly, answering questions, or simply sitting in the crowd. I will NOT question or refute anyone’s beliefs. I will be respectful of all members of the church. All proceeds will go to the charitable acts of Upstate Atheists in 2014.

Dustin Wyatt of the Spartanburg Herald Journal has more on the auction here, including my take on it. (Spoiler: I’m all for it.)

As I write this, the bidding is just over $100. Surely the souls of Eve and her daughter are worth more than that to Christians…

The best part is that all the money will go to her group’s charity work. There’s no downside to a high bid, even for Christians. It all goes back to helping those less fortunate.
