Interesting Canadian take on the current atheist movement. I was very impressed with the rapper. In Europe atheists just get on with life apparently in Canada they feel the need to have basement meetings. It’s all a bit strange but interesting non the less.

Dan Dennett receives the “Richard Dawkins Award” at the AAI 07 conference in Washington, D.C. Julia Sweeney introduces Richard Dawkins, and Richard Dawkins introduces Dan Dennett.
Jump to 17:20 to start the speech (Intros by Julia Sweeney – VERY, VERY ANNOYING and Richard Dawkins)
Were you kidnapped from your comfy bed as an infant by your parents and paraded in front of friends and family in a silly white frock, dunked in water while some guy in white muttered superstitious chants over you? If so then you were probably Baptised against your will. This happens thousands of times a week to helpless children who have no say in what they are being signed up for. What really annoys me is that parents who are otherwise secular and have only been to church 5 times in their lives still feel it appropriate to put their children through this. They will even stand in public and makes promised they clearly do not believe in. Well now you can overcome this insanity and set the record straight with this Certificate of De-Baptism… available from the National Secular Society.
