Madison Freethought Festival: Hemant Mehta on high school atheists

Here’s Hemant totally jocking my style and talking about high school atheists.  It’s ok, he’s damn good at it.

About JT Eberhard

When not defending the planet from inevitable apocalypse at the rotting hands of the undead, JT is a writer and public speaker about atheism, gay rights, and more. He spent two and a half years with the Secular Student Alliance as their first high school organizer. During that time he built the SSA’s high school program and oversaw the development of groups nationwide. JT is also the co-founder of the popular Skepticon conference and served as the events lead organizer during its first three years.

    That was an awesome presentation. I liked the graphs showing ridiculous explosion in high school secular groups.

    Do you know what would be really neat to look at? A map showing the distribution of secular students groups by state. Are there regions of the country that seem to be more popping with regard to new student groups?

    • JT Eberhard

      Yes, actually. About a quarter of the high school groups reside in either Texas or California. They follow the trends of college that way.

    I was surprised that John Stossel was doing the interview & story they Hemant played. I then saw that the stroy was from him ABC news days. These foxy days he’d be with the xtian teammates in harassing the out atheist.
