MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR: The Rapture on May 21

Posted May 18, 2011

Humanists: This may be the last issue of Humanist Network News to be read by our Christian allies and Religious Right foes, for as you've heard, the Rapture is supposed to occur this weekend. All true Christians are supposed to be zapped up to heaven on Saturday. With the devout either gone or rationalizing another failed faith prediction, we'll definitely have reason to celebrate. Let's show those mourning their continued existence on Earth that just because we don't believe in a traditional god doesn't mean that we don't know how to have fun. Many local atheist and humanist groups are holding After the Rapture Parties. Are you attending one? Hosting your own? Tell us about it at hnn@americanhumanist.org.
