Happy Friday the 13th – Zombies, suicide, and me talking abortion

Friday13

Sometime, next week probably, I am going to discuss Richard Dawkins and abuse and trauma, but this week I thought I’d end on an upbeat note, since it is Friday the Thirteenth and I do suffer from friggatriskaidekaphilia. 1.

Secular Coalition for America Summit: Day 1
