Steve Ahlquist is veering from the blogosphere and taking up the pulpit this weekend as he’ll be speaking on atheism and Humanism Sunday morning, August 11th, at the First Unitarian Church of Providence, One Benevolent St. The talk will outline thoughts on separation of church and state, reproductive justice and LGBTQ rights. The service lasts about 48 minutes and Ahlquist will be speaking for twelve minutes. So only 25% is guaranteed to be controversial.
The church has lots of history, and refreshments will be served at the end. Philip Eil interviewed Ahlquist in the Providence Phoenix about the talk and his work as a Humanist activist.
