Greta Christina AND Sikivu Hutchinson

Two of the most badass women in the atheist movement are going to be in Columbia, SC during the next week.  It’s pretty amazing.

Tomorrow night (2/23) Sikivu Hutchinson will be here talk about, among other things, Strom Thurmond, race, and religion.  Which gives me an excuse to post the following picture!

Strom "all the laws of Washington and all the bayonets of the Army cannot force the Negro into our homes, into our schools, our churches and our places of recreation and amusement" Thurmond

Then!!  Then it will be Greta Christina, who is tied with Jen McCreight and Heidi Anderson as my favorite people of all time ever in the atheist movement, on Sunday!  I AM SO EXCITE.  She will be talking about sexuality and religion, which gives me an excuse to post THIS picture:

Fett’s Vette and Sweden

Two seemingly unrelated things, right?  WRONG!

I am going to Sweden on Monday AND I’ve just recorded Fett’s Vette on the Ukulele.  I know.  It’s a plethora of goodness.  And it’s Tom Keane’s new favorite thing on the internet — if that doesn’t recommend it, I don’t know what could.
