SSA Week Day 2: My Picks
SSA Week is ongoing, as atheist bloggers come together to raise money for the Secular Student Alliance. At the time this post was published, they’ve collectively raised $59,680 out of a goal of $100,000. Keep it up!
For Sunday’s blogathon, we had four participants. Here are my picks:
First, Dale McGowan at The Meming of Life wrote 33 excellent, thoughtful posts, which somehow seems like cheating. Of them all, my favorite was Dying, about how an atheist parent can teach their kids about death. My runner-up was What Vonnegut said, or maybe didn’t, about a quote that may or may not have been said by Kurt Vonnegut, but is an inspiring thought nonetheless.
At Butterflies and Wheels, Ophelia Benson talks about how she personally became an atheist.
Maryam Namazie pointed out that in Muslim theocracies, violence against nonbelievers and brutal gender segregation run riot, but all you need for an arrest is hurt religious sentiment.
And at The Crommunist Manifesto, Ian Cromwell was performing songs by request. You definitely can’t top his godless rendition of “Glory, Hallelujah”.
