go vote today, DITCH MITCH!!  breathtakingly, i can not vote today for my own governor, as only ppl living with city limits can vote, and my address is considered the 'burbs, "county" address........

that seems wrong to me, that my very very large entire neighborhood is left out of voting for our own governor.

so someone go for ME today?  Cast one for Gregg on my behalf, since my lamo local voting laws prohibit me from voting.  grrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Indiana Chapter of Americans United for Separation of Church and State--Thursday, May 12, 7:00 pm, All Souls Unitarian Church, Beattie Room, 5805 East 56th Street, Indianapolis. Topic: Why Establishment Poisons Everything. Speaker: The Rev. Dr. Charles W. Allen, Chaplain, Grace Unlimited, A Ministry of Indianapolis Lutheran-Episcopal Campus Ministry. 

Establishing a religion is unjust to those who do not follow it, but more importantly (for those of us who are religious), it cuts the heart out of that religion.  Establishment poisons religion.  But religion is not the only thing that establishment can poison.  It can also poison the sciences, the arts, and anything else we consider vital to the betterment of life.  Philosopher Alasdair MacIntyre once said that a vital component of the good life is 'a life spent in seeking for the good life.”' Establishment gets in the way of that vital component by penalizing the seekers.  Establishment poisons everything.”--Dr. Allen

Scientific Examination of ReligionSunday, May 15, 6:00 pm, Center for Inquiry Indiana, 350 Canal Walk, Suite A, Indianapolis. Topic:  Liars for Jesus: The Religious Right's Alternate Version of History.  Sean O'Brien is the discussion leader for this group.  This will be the third in a series of discussions on this important book.

Though not as well known as the anti-science attacks from Creationists of all stripes, there is a growing revisionist form of American history that is becoming popular with many American Christians.  This version of history denies the legitimacy of the separation of church and state and asserts that the United States was explicitly founded as a Christian nation. 

 Beginning in March, we will review the investigation by researcher Chris Rodda into the historical distortions and fabrications by a popular Christian Dominionist, David Barton.  Her detailed and highly readable investigation into what the Founding Fathers really thought and said about religion, secular government and church/state separation counters Barton and others who claim to have a new version of truth.

  Beginning in March, we will review Chris Rodda's book Liars for Jesus: The Religious Right's Alternate Version of History.   

Indy Atheist Meetup—Monday, May 16, 7:00 pm.,Moe and Johnny’s, 5380 North College, Indianapolis. Open discussion. Anyone is welcome. Bryan Smiley is the coordinator of Indy Atheist Meetup group.

Rapture Party and Roy Zimmerman Show

Roy Zimmerman: Feeding a Starving Ear

Person-CFI-Zimmerman-Roy.jpg 

Saturday, May 21, 6:00 pm
Center for Inquiry-Indiana
350 Canal Walk, Suite A, Indianapolis

Satirical songwriter Roy Zimmerman returns to CFI Indiana with his one-man show.

 "Roy Zimmerman: Feeding a Starving Ear"

Party begins at 6:00 pm and the show starts at 7:00 pm

Admission: $15.

Space is limited so purchase your tickets at CFI Indiana or online today.

Don't be Left Behind!!!!

Snacks and beverages will be available for a donation.

“Live From the Starving Ear” is 90 minutes of Zimmerman’s funny songs and comic commentary.  The Tea Party, the economy, same-sex marriage, Socialism, Creationism, guns, taxes, abstinence and yes, Barack Obama all come under satirical scrutiny.  “There’s a whole new political landscape,” he says, “painted by Jackson Pollock.”

In twelve albums over twenty years, Zimmerman has brought the sting of satire to the struggle for Peace and Social Justice.  His songs have been heard on HBO and Showtime.  He has recorded for Warner/Reprise Records.  He’s been profiled on NPR’s “All Things Considered,” and he's a featured blogger for the Huffington Post.  Roy’s YouTube videos have garnered over six million views and tens of thousands of comments, many of them coherent.  And yes, he has a website: http://royzimmerman.com/

He sings an uptempo pop tune about “Real America.”  He sings a limbo-like song about Rush Limbaugh - “How low can you go?”  There’s an ode to the “Orange County Rolling Acres Senior Center Cannabis Club.”   There’s even a “Sing-Along Second Amendment.”

The San Francisco Bay Guardian says, “Remember that old picture of Woody Guthrie with the sign on his guitar reading ‘this machine kills fascists’?  Cross that image with Tom Lehrer, a dash of John Denver, Doctor Demento, and maybe a Mormon missionary, and you get something approximating the sight and sound of Roy Zimmerman, the clean-cut take-no-prisoners political satirist.”

Tom Lehrer himself says, "I congratulate Roy Zimmerman on reintroducing literacy to comedy songs. And the rhymes actually rhyme, they don't just 'rhyne.'"

Joni Mitchell says, "Roy's lyrics move beyond poetry and achieve perfection."

Roy’s lyrics have a decidedly Lefty slant. "We used to have a name for Right Wing satire. We called it 'cruelty.'" 

The HBO documentary “The Trials of Ted Haggard,” directed by Alexandra Pelosi features Roy’s song, “Ted Haggard is Completely Heterosexual.”  Mr. Haggard himself said of the song, “It's really bad — I mean, it's poorly done — but it's funny.”

For more information and to listen to a sample of Roy's songs, please visit his website.
