The Jefferson Center will be having a "Special" Salon on Tuesday, March 15, from 7-9pm in the Meese Room, Third Floor, SOU Hannon Library in Ashland. In this fiery talk, "Fighting God: An Atheist Manifesto for a Religious World", David Silverman argues that religion is more than just wrong, it is malevolent and does not deserve our respect. It is our duty to be outspoken and do what we can to bring religion down. Examining the mentality, methods and issues facing any firebrand atheist, Silverman presents an overwhelming argument for activist atheism. Please join us for this lively event.
