This month we travel to pride events all over the state. We represented NIA in Indianapolis and South Bend. We plan to be in Michigan City later this month and Fort Wayne in July. We’re looking forward to seeing regular and new members at our Atheist BrewTalk and Coffee & Conversation events. Keep listening to There is No Godcast--new episodes are available on the TING and Northern Indiana Atheists Facebook pages and websites.
love so loud, you couldn’t hear the hate
How do you challenge a street preacher spewing hateful rhetoric during Indy Pride? Drown out the hate with love. Jama Sullivan of Whitewater Freethought used our sign not only to cover the preacher’s face, but she also gave out hugs to the long line of people waiting to get into pride. NIA continued this campaign of free hugs from an atheist with a gay agenda at South Bend’s pride event as well.
Come to Roger’s Park in Goshen on Saturday, June 29th at 2:00 pm for the No Place for Hate Rally. Come and join us in celebrating love, and declaring Goshen ‘No place for Hate'. Noah Bush, Host of There is No Godcast, will be a guest speaker at this event.
