FFRF Convention

The Freedom From Religion Foundation will hold its 31st annual convention in Chicago, October 10-12. Speakers include journalist Eleanor Clift and Daniel Dennett. Clift has been a contributing editor at Newsweek for a number of years and appears regularly on some of the "political pundits" shows. Professor Dennett is well known for his books, including Breaking the Spell and Darwin's Dangerous Idea. He will receive the Foundation's Emperor Has No Clothes Award.

Check out the FFRF website and be sure to take their Bible quiz. It's an absolute hoot!
