I have a basic understanding of the separation of church and state, and I am a huge advocate.  It's why I joined ffrf.  I think people should be free to be religious or not.  I get why church/state…Continue

Thanks Derek.  I think the article is good.  It's the responses that drive me crazy.  There are so many morons living in Milwaukee that it drives me nuts!  If i responded to every ridiculous, mis-informed comment made, Christmas would be over by the time I got done typing.

Hope to see everyone at the SWiFT social this Thursday. For those interested, I will have recall Scot Walker and Rebecca Kleefisch petitions. To keep the Atheist theme in this string, I hear a story about our Lt. Gov. Apparently, MS. Kleefisch was asked HER idea of an ideal Gov. I am told her response was a Christian Male. Yeah. Our Lt. Gov. does not think she should hold the office. Nice.

Field Trip opportunity! November 20: Carpool to Skokie to hear Roy Speckhardt!

There will be cake and ice cream.  Other than that... go for it!  If you want to bring something more solid like a lunch item, feel free.  Anything goes, there is nothing forbidden.  If you just bring yourself, that's great.  Nothing is required.

Looking forward to the Topic Meeting this Sunday. The film and celebration should be a good time. If we are bringing refreshments, are there any requests? What is the usual fare? This is my first one, so I would like to avoid faux pax if, at all, possible.

Occupy Your Capitol National Event -Oct. 29th 12pm-3pm - I heard about interest for this at the social last week. Found this on Meetup this morning. FYI.
