The American Atheists Mass Resignation Event

In conjunction with the annual conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the American Atheists decided to conduct an event inviting people to resign, in mass, from the Church. I attended the event to document it (not to resign), and decided to record my observations.

Conference Thoughts and Experiences (Day Two)

I’m attending the Sunday sessions of general conference, on April 6, 2014, and thought I would include in this post ideas and thoughts that stood out to me from the many available.
