Campus Atheists, Skeptics and Humanists – more often known as CASH to its members – is an active student group at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities and an affiliate of the Secular Student Alliance. CASH has a mission to foster a socially and intellectually engaging community for nontheists, and to promote tolerance and understanding for all, regardless of belief. Through their activities, CASH strives to address negative stereotypes, misconceptions about, and discrimination against nontheists.

Although they have not yet finished the first half of the 2012-2013 school year, CASH has already participated in several events which have garnered them prominent media attention. Early this year CASH partnered with other student groups to protest the disruptive demonstrations of evangelical campus preacher George Edward Smock, aka Brother Jed. Late this September, CASH hosted an “Everyone Draw Mohammed Day” event which protested anti-blasphemy laws and the overreach of religious laws.

This spring, CASH is hosting a large conference called SkepTech, which is drawing big name speakers from the secular community such as PZ Myers, Greta Christina, Hemant Mehta and Zach Weinersmith.

Current CASH board members Bryan Carver and Joshua Brose will join Atheists Talk this Sunday to discuss their experiences with CASH and atheist activism at the University of Minnesota.

    Gosh, Brother Jed is still around? I actually have a signed copy of his book somewhere.

    We tolerated him up at Moorhead State year after year. He always gained a crowd and he certainly started some pretty interesting conversations.

    The Rasta confronted him one year – which was seriously the most awesome theological exchange between two groups that I’ve seen.

    Campus Crusade actually had shifts to stand near him to keep the peace and attempt to explain that Jed did not represent their faith.

    Rumor has it that Brother Jed finally crossed the line when he started referring to black people as “Cainites”.

    That was the end of that.

    Wow, this guy brings back memories. In the mid-nineties he was touring the US doing the same thing. Every time he’d visit nearby campuses my buddies and I would heckle him. I just looked him up and it looks like they made a movie about the rascal Brother Jed. It was only a matter of time…
