Conservatives Are Flipping Out Over a College Skeptic Group’s Abortion Rights Display

Last week the University of North Georgia Skeptics Society held an event designed to get people talking about reproductive rights. They made fetus-shaped cookies, handed out pizza, and put out signs that encouraged students to write down why abortion should stay legal. The event itself was pretty routine. There weren’t many complaints (other than from students who generally oppose abortion itself).

But the other day, after conservative blogger Matt Walsh posted this image from the event on Facebook, it quickly began circulating around the anti-abortion blogosphere:

Last Easter, they honored the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

And this year? They’re going with Jedis.

An Atheist Explains the Importance of Speaking with Believers on Your College Campus

I’ve posted a number of videos by Anthony Magnabosco on this site, in which he speaks to strangers about their religious beliefs for just few minutes and then deconstructs the whole conversation afterwards.

He recently spoke to a Secular Student Alliance affiliate in Texas about how students could conduct effective street epistemology:
