Victory in Cranston

After a roller coaster of a night in which Jessica Ahlquist sat stoic in the back of the auditorium doing what she’s done for the last two years (endured the intimidation tactics of the deeply faithful), the board voted 5-2 not to appeal the original decision.

Good.  Let that scrappy young lady enjoy part of her childhood.

She has made tremendous sacrifices for our cause.  It has cost her years out of her youth, and she parted with those years for every atheist in America.

I know she reads the blog.  If you want to tell her thanks, leave a comment.
