Another Update on the Financial Boycott Against the Park District Board Member Who Wouldn’t Stand for the Pledge

I’m happy to say we’ve reached the $2,600 goal in under a week — and then some! I’ll be getting this money to the park district soon (more on that later). The coverage has been pretty positive, though one reporter asked a fair question of what will happen in future years. I hope we can raise enough this year to ease the stress in the future, but I’ll revisit this story in a year to see how the park district is doing and take it from there.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on the project — more videos will be posted soon — and we’d also appreciate your suggestions as to which questions we ought to tackle next!

New Radio Ad Tells Atheists ‘Where To Go’

The United Coalition of Reason, known for putting atheist billboards around the country, has announced a new radio campaign telling atheists “where to go.”

Thankfully, it isn’t Hell.

You can hear the ad here (MP3). The text is below:

We’d like to tell atheists where to go! Not just atheists actually… but agnostics, freethinkers, Humanists, and anyone who is just plain non-religious. You can go straight to… the Secular Directory at GodlessGroups.org. That’s GodlessGroups dot O-R-G. The place to find other godless people just like you!

America today is bursting with atheist, agnostic, freethought, and Humanist groups. If you don’t believe in a god and are seeking to meet others of like mind and interests or just want to find groups that can give you a larger voice in our culture, you need GodlessGroups.org. You can find everything from education groups to support groups to atheist churches! Wherever you live in the United States or Canada you’ll find groups for you. When you get to the site, just type in your city and state and, just like that, all of those nearby godless groups will pop up.

We live to tell atheists where to go! So go right now to GodlessGroups dot O-R-G. GodlessGroups dot O-R-G.

If you can’t tell, the ad promotes the Secular Directory, a new website that shows you all the atheist/secular groups in your area:
