Attention:  Booking Manager

We are an accoustic atheist cover band called "Monster On Sunday".  We have just begun and already we are the official band of CFI in Portland Oregon plus we just played with Shelley Segal!  We are looking to play more shows and we were advised to contact your organization about this endeavor.  Our contact information is below, as well as a music sample.  Please let us know what upcoming music events you might like to have us perform! 

Thank you for your time,

Tally Cass (971) 212-5223

Is this group still active? The last post was Sept 17, 2011.

Hello everybody! I am recently transplanted from Colorado to the Medford area, looking for any like-minded peeps in southern Oregon... so far appears to be quite the daunting task. Would appreciate any replies/advice! :)

Greetings Oregon Atheists. I can't believe how hard it is to find local atheists in the Salem, Oregon. I hope through sites like this it will be possible to communicate with local like-minded folks.

 

I recently joined, H.A.S., Humanists Association of Salem, while searching for an atheist group. We recently voted to disband the H.A.S. and become a satellite group of the, CFI, Center For Inquiry of Portland. My hope is that we can get the area atheists and other non-believers to join the group and bring an atheist presents to the Salem area.

It looks like the Clackamas County District Attorney, along with the local school district is trying to work with them. Here's a link to a story in the oregonian.

Sorry to hear the signatures fell short for the OCTA legislation. Christina, your post below on 5/27 at 2:21pm is by far the best description I've seen of what the Act would do. I'd like to humbly suggest the next campaign be geared more in the way your comment is (pithy, bullet points, commonly inherent questions pointed out), and perhaps put higher focus on the hemp (fuel, jobs) & financial aspects which moderates and even conservatives would take notice of. To be honest, I don't think the 'cannabis community', if you will, really comprehends the general public's apathy (at best) towards legalizing cannabis. They'll have to be practically force-fed the facts on what it will do for them and the overall community, and the economic factors.

I say this as an OMMp cardholder who primarily exists in the non-cannabis community (with that general thought-process), and became acutely aware of the dividing line from how the cannabis community views things when I started interacting within it to learn how to use and obtain medication. I was, and am, stunned at how the cannabis community seems to have no idea of how the non-cannabis community thinks or functions sans desire for personal cannabis use.

The next push for the OCTA would be well-served by having open communications (maybe Town Hall meetings) with people in the non-cannabis community, to hear their views, concerns, and desires. They should probably be part of the planning committee(s), and part of the entire process, and they can help educate people from the general-public perspective all along the way.

This is one of those cases where it is imperative to really understand those who are indifferent or in opposition, because they are the masses. Everything I saw about the OCTA campain was geared towards what the cannabis community wants - the general public really does not care about what the cannabis community wants. The next campaign should be more focused on showing the general public they will get what THEY want.

Just my 2 cents....

Thank you and all of the volunteers for all of your passion and hard work!

Greetings fellow Oregon atheists. Living in Italy now, but lived in Oregon until I was 20. Was just back in Portland as recently as December. Had to visit Voodo Doughnuts, Powell's Bookstore and the Tillamook Cheese Factory.
