Pete Stark (D-CA) to Give First-Ever Public Remarks About His Non-Belief

Earlier in the year, Pete Stark (D-CA) came out as the first member of the United States Congress to openly deny belief in a God.

Outside a few remarks about how he was positively surprised at peoples’ reactions to his admission, he has not spoken publicly about his non-belief.

That will change on Thursday, September 20th.

Stark will be speaking at Harvard University at an event sponsored by the school’s Humanist Chaplaincy.

  • Wow! I’d love to see him speak. I hope someone figures out how to get it on YouTube.

    Oh cool! I wish I could attend, but it too far away for me. 🙁 I would love to meet the first politician to admit he is a non-theist. I think he has guts, but it gives me some hope that one day soon- hopefully before I die- that more of us can say publically that we are non-theists. Of course, he is in an area that is more accepting and I’m stuck in the Belt Buckle of the Bible Belt. 🙁 “Mriana reminds herself, “Just two more years. Just two more years.”*
