Patriot & Atheist: Kansas City Regional Atheist Meeting


Are you a non-theist who believes in the American Dream? Do you hold that the separation of church and state is a fundamental part of our national ethos? Do you want public policies based on sound science and reason? If so, you won’t want to miss the Patriot & Atheist: Kansas City Regional Atheist Meet, scheduled for Oct. 5 to 7!
