In 2002, the Catholic Church had World Youth Day in Toronto. About 150,000
Catholic youth came from around the world. The Mormon Church helped out by
preparing food for some of the youths.
How religiocentric do you have to be to have this even be a story?
A few events you missed reporting:In Seattle, Richard Dawkins will
be speaking at "Working Together for a Secular Society, A
Celebration", April 1st, 2012, 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM.The
Northwest Freethought Alliance Convention, in Renton, Washington, began Friday,
and goes through the weekend.In San Diego, "A Secular Society
Worth Saving: The Role of Religion & Secularism in Public Policy” will
be held April 6th, 2012, 5:00 PM - 8:00 PMThe "Something
From Nothing" event, An evening with Richard Dawkins and Lawrence Krauss,
will be held in Canberra and Sydney, Australia, April 10th - 12th, 2012.Then the 2012 Global Atheist Convention – ‘A
Celebration of Reason’, will follow April 13 - 15, 2012 in Melbourne,
Australia."The Skeptics of Oz" is a FREE conference in
Wichita, KS on April 21st and 22nd at The Forum Theater."Women
in Secularism" conference is May 18 - 20, 2012, at the Crystal

Also the MSA (Muslim Student Association) of Utah is having a 3 day conference
this week end. The Meetings today are the Fine Arts Building at the U of U.
Great attendance last night. Following other meetings - a presentation of
"Why We Are Muslims" will given at 4:00 PM. A presentation that will be
good for Muslims and NonMuslims alike.
@The AtheistHow do you KNOW those events are happening?
They're in far off places that I can't see.
A1994, right on!
@A ScientistIt's just a little good natured ribbing for
'The Atheist.' Scientists and Atheists do have a sense of humor,
Atheism means one knows there is no God. That is an impossibility. Better to say
agnostic. Lawrence Krauss is a very good cosmologist but a very poor authority
on the existence of God. He should stick to his field of expertise rather than
making himself look silly.
Loved this article. It was clearly not meant to be an exhaustive list of all
religious conferences, and it does a wonderful job of explaining what we have in
common with our friends of other faiths. Very timely. Those who have lived
exclusively among people who believe (or disbelieve) as they do often have very
little knowledge about the beliefs and practices of other communities.
Ignorance is a great catalyst for prejudice: the ignorance of others about
Latter-day Saint beliefs in many ways mirrors our own ignorance of the beliefs
and practices of other faith groups. Thank you for broadening the scope!
Incoherence is not humor.Or didn't they teach you that in
I actually find many of the incoherent criticisms of the insidious nature of the
Church and religion in general to be quite funny.
