What’s it like to be a humanist, an atheist, a freethinker in outstate Minnesota? How do atheists find each other in a small town, where they risk exposure leading to the loss of friendships or even business if word gets out that they aren’t religious? On Sunday, July 27, Atheists Talk has invited Amy LaValle Hansmann from Brainerd and Ken Kressin from Cannon Falls. These two have taken the initiative to form groups for atheists to gather, to talk, to have fun and to provide mutual support in areas that can be less than supportive. We will talk about their struggles, their successes and a bit about what sorts of activities they have engaged in.
