Ooops...I don't think that came out right.

Actually, it's 'The Heretic's Barbecue', an event hosted by CVASS.

Here's what the press release in my mailbox had to say:

"Do you cherish science and rational thinking?"

Well, yes, I do.

"Would you like to meet with others who share your secular values?"

Well, I'm not a secularist, but I do share values with those who do.

"Then join us for a freethinking event, located right here in the California Central Valley. The Central Valley Alliance of Atheists and Skeptics proudly presents the First Annual Heretics Barbecue!"

Wow, that's not what I expected. The press release goes on:

"Rational thinkers, skeptics, secular people of all types, and friends and supporters AND their families are all welcome at this event."

That's a pretty broad invite! I guess I can attend and worry about which category I fit into later! If this sounds fun (and I think it will be), then why not attend?
