Back in June, Professor Linda Brunton of Columbia State Community College in Tennessee did something to upset some of the conservative Christian students in her psychology class: She made them think.

A Wedding Worth Celebrating, Even Though Her Former Church Members Didn’t Show Up

It’s good to be back :)

Huge thanks to Paul Fidalgo for taking care of this site so I could go off the grid for a few days.

Turns out there was news of a big wedding while I was away: Lauren Drain, a former member of Westboro Baptist Church, was married early last month, something we found out about after she posted pictures of the ceremony on Reddit.

While her “God Hates Fags” church members weren’t there to support her (or, thankfully, protest), two of her “church sisters” who also escaped the cult were.

Check out this picture and try not to smile:

Taking a Short Break…

This is just a brief note to let you all know I’m going to be gone for the next few days so I can focus on my wedding :)

(In atheist-speak, I’m getting Hitched.)

While I’m gone, Paul Fidalgo will be running the show. Paul is the Communications Director for the Center for Inquiry, a blogger at Near-Earth Object, and the host of a new podcast (The Obcast) that features wonderful long-form conversations with people in the science/tech worlds. If you’re not already subscribed to his show, you should take care of that now.

There are a few more posts in the queue, but I’ll be back early next week after taking care of all the chaos and stress and happy-fun-excitement that a wedding brings (and going on a hastily-planned mini-honeymoon in downtown Chicago).

Be good to Paul while I’m away! [Read more...]
