Indian atheist blogger’s murderers were sentenced to death recently.

In August a 4th one was hacked to death. http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyath...angladesh/

People attending this conference take great risks, much greater than here in the US. I tip my hat to them.

Not to detract from your point about personal risk but ... fixt.

Brian,
I've suggested this before but why not go for a Brian's News Page thread?

Oops. Thanks for the correction. Thumbsup

RE: India holds 9th annual atheist conference
Huh, why would I need my own news thread? The website allows everyone to post news stories, that makes no sense. If I get one thread to post news stories then everyone else who wants their own special thread will have one. It simply makes more sense for everyone to post new threads and simply check to see if the story is already posted, and if there is overlap the admins can combine them or delete one.

That's why the site has a "World News" category.

I was not aware we had a conference, let alone a world conference. What do they do there?


My Youtube channel if anyone is interested.
