The Course of Reason On Air Session 3: Blasphemy Rights and the Campaign for Free Expression
September 5, 2013
Why is blasphemy an important issue for the non-religious? Why do we, of all people, care about promoting free expression? How is the defense of free expression a humanistic endeavor?
Join the discussion next Monday, September 9 starting at 9:00 PM EST. A live stream of the event (a live online Google Hangout with video) will be posted to the Google+ event page, where campus organizers Sarah Kaiser and Cody Hashman will be joined by student leaders and CFI Office of Public Policy director Michael De Dora to discuss International Blasphemy Rights Day, coming up on September 30, and how and why we can promote free expression.
