Sunday November 21, 1:00-400pm  Minnesota Atheists Public Meeting
Ridgedale Library, 12601 Ridgedale Drive Minnetonka, MN 55305-1909

Tom Flynn, Executive Director of the Council for Secular Humanism, Editor of
Free Inquiry magazine, and Director of the Robert Green Ingersoll Birthplace
Museum, presents "The Trouble with Christmas."

*The Trouble with Christmas*

Tom Flynn has been recounting the history of the year-end holidays - and
offering his rollicking rationale for why secular humanists should just
sit the merriment out - since his book The Trouble with Christmas came
out in 1993. But 2010 is the first year that his presentation is fully
illustrated in a lavish PowerPoint show containing more than 200 slides.
(Fear not, as the angel never really said; some of those slides go by
really, really fast.)

In "The Trouble with Christmas" Flynn will examine where our most
treasured holiday traditions came from - from the Christ Child to Santa
Claus, from the wassail bowl to the tannenbaum - and ask whether there's
still time to send them back. It's an information-filled,
thought-provoking, yet wildly funny audio-visual extravaganza. Missing
this presentation would be like getting a lump of coal in your stocking!

Flynn is Executive Director of the Council for Secular Humanism, Editor of
Free Inquiry magazine, and Director of the Robert Green Ingersoll
Birthplace Museum. He co-founded and was for thirteen years co-editor of
the newsletter Secular Humanist Bulletin. He blogs in's
"On Faith" section.

His presentation will be preceded by a Minnesota Atheists business meeting
which will include the ratification of Andy Flamm's appointment to fill a
director-at-large position on the Board of Directors.
     Please join us.
