GODLESS COMMUNITY BOOTH COMING TO SPOKANE COUNTY FAIR

Members of the Spokane Coalition of Reason will hold a community booth at the Spokane County Fair from Friday, September 11th through Sunday, September 20th with an Ask-An-Atheist booth. The booth features Skeptic, Freethinking, Humanist, and Atheist literature both for adults and children, and a group of friendly, happy, healthy, productive, tax-paying atheists to answer your questions about what it is like to not have a deity watching and waiting: ready to send someone to hell at the smallest wrong transgression.

WHO:
The Spokane Coalition of Reason, along with their affiliates:
– Eastern Atheists
– Inland Northwest Freethought Society (www.infreethought.org)
– North Idaho Secular Society
– Spokane Secular Society (www.spokanesecularsociety.org)
– Palouse Coalition of Reason (www.palousecor.org)

WHERE:
Spokane County Fair and Expo Center, 404 N. Havana St. #1, Spokane WA, 99202.

WHEN:
Friday, September 11th until Sunday, September 20th.

WHY:
Non-theism is more than just realizing that our society, the world and our universe is a bigger, brighter and more amazing place than all the make-believe ideas. The table and booth displays allow people to make connections with others of sincerely-held belief in the community, and do something more than just wishing things would change. When we stand together at events like this, it gives a voice to non-theistic people, and encourages others to stand up for who they are. That is what makes atheist and non-believers so exciting, and that is that we don’t have a dogma to guide us but our own logic and reason.
