Out of all that attended Border Bash in Bristol, TN/VA, we had only 2 hateful Christians! Everyone else was so pleasant and peaceful and willing to at least listen and converse civilly. There were even Atheists that came by and thanked us for finally getting a group together that they can be a part of.
I would like to personally thank Cody, Mat and Ethan for showing their support and being gentleman at the table and with others. We showed the community that we are here and our voice will be heard.
We received the usual questions like, “Who will you call out to on your death bed?”, “Where do you think you will go when you die?” and “Don’t you know you are going to HELL?!?”. There was more discussion then questions asked, but that is fine and whatever it takes to make a person think!
Next Border Bash, we hope to have an even bigger show of support! We will have our banners by then, also which you will get a preview of hopefully at the first meeting this coming Thursday, May 8th! I am also creating some “Ask an Atheist” t-shirts to be worn by the volunteers!
If you can come out to these events and show your support, we would greatly appreciate it!
P.S. We only made $7 in donations tonight, but that is more than we expected and it will be put directly into the Tri Cities Atheist Society PayPal account. (Will take 3-5 business days to transfer from my savings)
