Hello, Honorable Heretics
Our third meeting is finally here. Stay strong and enjoy life.
Wednesday at 6PM (Sept. 24th) in Mason Hall 3314, we'll be discussing what it means for something to be offensive. In preparation for blasphemy day, we'll express some different views on what is tolerable and at what point (if any) a government should control a speech determined to be offensive. Please come with personal stories and views to share. Should all speech be allowed? Are some ideas too offensive to be spoken? Do we have to tolerate every view to still have free speech?
This Saturday, September 27th, we'll be going bowling at Colonial Lanes from 8:00-11:00pm. Meet at the Michigan League at 7:30, and we'll drive over at 7:45. Drivers will be needed and appreciated.
September 30th is International Blasphemy day. This is a time when we celebrate our freedom from religious blasphemy laws and remind people of the work that needs to be done where they still exist. Keep your ears open for some fun, irreverent activities that Tuesday.
