How come they kicked out the guy who harassed the other girl then? If they're gonna kick people out for threatening students they should fucking well do it Angry First amendment my pasty white bum. She wasn't keen for a confrontation.

RE: Out of the closet / Openly Secular Day
I wish I had some sort of science shirt I could wear at least. I'd like a subtle way to acknowledge the day. I made a pledge to tell two people but haven't done it yet. Not sure how to! Half of me is tempted to just be done with this game and post publicly on fb! I'm thinking my fb activity has given me away to many anyway. I "came out" to a friend a few days ago and her response was "I sorta figured from what I see on fb". Another friend said the same a few months ago. I don't post anything, but my likes and comments on atheist pages (such as seth's/TTA) show up in their feeds.

I hereby declare that I will "borrow" that phrase in my personal bio.

Thanks Smile

I'm not a Christian ... like many other Christians.

Openly Secular Day 2020 - maybe I can do it then...

RE: Out of the closet / Openly Secular Day
Some know about me already, some don't.

Recently, I came out to the office I work at. Discussions were being made of a religious nature, and I was itching the entire time until I couldn't take it anymore. Fortunately, no relationships have changed. Of course a few think I'm going to hell, but I can live with that. As far as work goes, I'm treated no different.

Some of my family knows, but those question the belief as well. As for the other, more religious parts of my family, I don't think I'd ever come out to them.

Did you report him to the police?

I told campus life rep who was there, with an audio recording of it. She said he had a first amendment right to say it.

I did tell him he was an immoral monster and pointed out that he, the Christian, was advocating violence while I, an atheist, was condemning it.

Edit: to post a photo of the jackass in question.

The First Amendment does not protect the uttering of threats. Your campus life rep is a moron.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

Ugh. Of course I would just find out about this a day late. Sad

It was pretty well organized, met some cool peeps while there. They were recording the event, so there's probably a good chance they'll post it somewhere online. If I come across a link, I'll make sure to post it in the thread.
