I first met former state senator, Sean Faircloth last October, at a private party on the top floor of the Hyatt Regency Hotel, during the Texas Freethought Convention in Houston. He and I had a long conversation over being immersed in a domineering religious society and the many ways that adversely affects our personal lives and family ties, especially in this state. We hit it off very well. Like so many people I’ve met in the secular movement, we became fast friends immediately. When I saw him again most recently at a humanist conference in New Orleans, he emerged from the crowd in the lobby to greet me with a huge bro-hug. We’ve probably only seen each other four or five times over the last year, but that’s the sort of camaraderie I find common in the secular movement.
You got it, man. It’s the least I can do. What are friends for?
Now slide over a couple Franklins.
