High School atheists in the Washington Post

Administrators at Melbourne High School in Melbourne, Fla. rejected an atheist club twice on the grounds it was “too controversial.” Students at another Florida high school were told by administrators that no religious clubs were permitted [Read More...]

Jesse Galef rocks it on CNN (and why I don't have his job)

The contents of this post are the opinions of JT Eberhard, not the Secular Student Alliance. Here’s Jesse’s interview on CNN.  The anchor shoveled propaganda at him and he cut through it like a laid back chainsaw.  Good for him.

You ever get déjà vu?

Via the Christian Post. A Pennsylvania high school is facing a legal battle to keep its monument of the Ten Commandments, which it has had for decades, after an atheist group threatened to sue the school district for violating the separation of church and state. Wait a minute.  Didn’t we already plow this field?  Didn’t [Read More...]

Bradlee Dean is poison to the young, but he has help
