Beautiful day for a rally/protest. Other than one knuckle-dragger in a Bedford County Free Press shirt who insisted on exercising his right to curse and yell his disapproval of our rally in front of the children in attendance, and an adorable elderly couple who visited to explain to us all how Darwin knew he was full of shit and how we were all going to burn in eternal fire, it was just a peaceful little gathering of those who believe the Constitution is worth defending. In attendance were The Bar Room Atheist gathering audio for his podcast, David Silverman from American Atheists, and Brian Fields of PA Non Believers!
While I got to plug Foster Disbelief on The Bar Room Atheist, have one of my signs make Tom and Cecil’s (from Cognitive Dissonance) day, and got a picture of me with David Silverman, the real winner today was the Constitution, the teen charged in this mess (who will have as many lawyers as he needs if he fights the case), and the locals who cared enough about the issue to risk “offending the Christian sensibilities” of Bedford, PA by showing up to protest.
Here are three quick pics from my phone. Once everyone else gets home and gets stuff posted, I will link to more images from Bedford.
Enjoy your weekend!
