Wow.. what a few days. First had a blast with Ashley (aka Healthyaddict) in Seattle. We did our best to get into the Discovery Institute to discuss their opinions on ‘academic freedom’ (creationist code for freedom to teach any unsubstantiated BS in the classroom), only to be denied at the door. Yup, the folks who support the most ‘academic freedom’ bills anywhere apparently have a closed door policy on discussing academic freedom.
Then after a fun meeting with the ‘Ask an Atheist‘ crew in Seattle (interview with me n Ashley to be uploaded) we parted company and I headed over to Boise ID.
In Boise I met up with religiousantagonist (guess what he does!). An hour or two of scheming and a Jesus outfit later we had a plan. We went down the local Home Depot with me /Jesus shopping for a cross! (video to follow), followed by ‘Jesus’ applying for a job in a Christian bookstore. Was quite buzzed after all that.
Then had a fun time hanging around with Jack (togetherforpeace). The guys a Christian, but someone eavesdropping on our conversation would have had a hard time drawing a line around any fundamental disagreements. We actually got on really well, and even rang the ‘Liberty Bell’ together!
That night I was back with religiousantagonist in full ‘Jesus’ garb. We headed downtown and had ONE HELL OF A TIME! Boises a kickin town! I luved it, and everyone (well almost everyone) luved ‘Jesus’ luvin it!!!
Got loads of pictures of Jesus doing everything from pole dancing, to riding the mechanical bull, to visiting a ‘gay’ nightclub. *ONE* *HELL* *OF* *AN* *NIGHT*!
Loads of pictures, I just havent got my hands on any of them yet.
We then went back to do the MSF charity thing for DPRJones, during which we hit on the ‘really good’ idea of microwaving Jesus. Well actually some communion wafers I had. We stopped before they caught fire, but not by much. Thick evil smelling smoke oozed from the microwave, however, it turns out Ashley, having a blonde moment forgot to hit record on blogtv. 😦
