On tap is a special guest speaker. According to Margey:
“Our guest speaker is Patty Pieniadz, an ex-Scientologist who once was the Executive Director of Narconon Connecticut and director of Rehabilitation for the Church of Scientology. Patty will be speaking about the inner workings of Scientology and her personal experience with the cult, I mean, religion.”
We are going to try and be there — sounds like an interesting evening!
If you aren’t familiar with the Drinking Skeptically group, from their website:
Had enough of astrologers, psychics, homeopaths, and spirit channelers? Yearning to talk with someone rational for awhile? Meetup with other local skeptics for some refreshing and sane conversation.
Drinking Skeptically does not take “official” positions on political, religious, academic, or other matters. For example, Drinking Skeptically is not an “atheist” organization; nor is it a “non-atheist” organization. All we are interested in is providing a social venue for rationalists, critical-thinkers, and skeptics to meet, have a good time, and get to know each other.
We went last month and enjoyed a casual evening of interesting discussion with some very intelligent and friendly folk. Hope you can make it!
