Hooooooboy, I’ve been so busy the past few days! Chris and I have literally been on our feet nonstop from 7am-12am every day since Wednesday.
Thus, I haven’t had much time to blog. Judging from Dr. Burger and JT’s lack of posts, they are all in the same boat.
I shall report that the Reason Rally succeeded wildly. I’ve never seen so many atheists in one place before!
I never thought I’d see the day when we’d pack the National Mall, when Tim Minchin could openly sing the Pope Song without being arrested, where non-attendees could see thousands of atheists and not hide in fear – or make us hide.A lot of random people wanted to say hi to me, recognizing me from this here interwebs. I talked to a woman who lives closeted because she still lives with her family and they are super-religious – she had to lie about what her plans were for today. I dream of the day when she can come out, and when no atheist has to hide their nonbelief.
Tomorrow and Monday I’ll be at the American Atheists National Convention, so I hope to see you there!
