Foundation Beyond Belief Seeks Fall Interns

The Foundation Beyond Belief is looking for a few interns for the fall:

Experience in the nonprofit sector is not a requirement, but is certainly a plus, as is experience in grant writing or other development capacities. Although interns will do work in several areas of Foundation operations, each internship includes a primary focus area, special project, and cause area vetting assignment.

It’s a great organization and our volunteers do a wonderful job. More information is right here. The deadline is July 20th, so apply soon! [Read more…]

While They Raised Money for Atheist Tornado Victim, He Was Capitalizing on the Generosity for Personal Gain

On May 23rd, the organizers of the FreeOK Oklahoma Freethought Convention decided to hold a fundraiser for Rebecca Vitsmun. Vitsmun, as you might recall, was the woman who famously told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that she was an atheist when he asked her if she was thanking the Lord following the tornado:

The fundraiser put Vitsmun’s phrase, “I’m actually an atheist,” on t-shirts:

These shirts will be sold online and at the FreeOK Convention in June for a $25 donation to a relief fund designated to help our heroine and her son get through this very difficult time. All tees are black, 100% cotton with “I’m actually an atheist” screen printed in white with the scarlet letter A that has come to be associated with atheism. Ladies cuts are available. When ordering, you may choose to have your tee shipped or have it waiting for you at the convention on June 22nd. As always, your support is appreciated.

Awesome, right? You got a shirt and Vitsmun’s family received some money to help them out through their difficult time. In fact, FreeOK sold over 1,000 shirts — they’re still fulfilling orders as we speak, but we’ll know very soon how much money will be given to the Vitsmuns.

Here’s where things get weird.
