• Send An Atheist To The Religion Newswriters Association Conference

    rnaThe Religion Newswriters Association is having their annual conference in Philadelphia at the end of August. I’m a newswriter. I write about religion… and atheism/humanism. I want to go.

    The cost of a one-day ticket is $260. The problem with being an atheist writer is that atheism doesn’t pay. If I converted to Christianity, I could easily get religious believers to donate in support of spreading the “good news.” But instead, I am an atheist and I want to spread the awesome news that Hell is imaginary too!

    More than that, I want to get religious newswriters to write more fairly when it comes to atheists and humanists. I want them to see that we don’t eat babies and that we aren’t “militant.” I want them to realize that most atheists today are good without God. In fact, I think that one can’t be good with a god, but that is another story. The point is that I need your help.

    Please consider helping to send me to the Religion Newswriters Association Conference. I need to raise $260. You can either donate to the Dangerous Talk Paypal account (link in the sidebar) or support me on Patreon (link also in the sidebar).

    After the conference is over, I will be writing about my experience. I will definitely write something here on Skeptic Ink and I will probably write an Examiner article too. I might even write something for Huffington Post depending on the experiences I have. If you are someone who is supporting my attendance, I will give you a special thanks on my article here. If you support me with $25 or more, I will also include a link to an atheist/humanist project (blog, YouTube channel, book, etc.) of your choice. Just e-mail me the information with the same e-mail account you use to donate.

    Thanks for your support!
