Challenging the campus preachers

preachersThe Michigan State University campus chapter for the Center for Inquiry held a self-described “respectful” protest challenging the campus preachers who frequently accost passersby behind Wells Hall. The Center for Inquiry is a secular group that promotes free thinking, and its mission is “foster a secular society based on science, reason, freedom of inquiry, and humanist values.”

CFI member Jefferson Seaver posted this image and others on Facebook, and some people questioned whether the street preacher in the photo was a real person. (Jefferson assures us he’s “the real deal.”) Chapter member Christian Orlic reports that one of the preachers emailed the group, asking them to come back to continue the streetcorner debate.

Bonnie Bucqueroux retired from Michigan State University's School of Journalism to experiment with online publications, including Lansing Online News. She is also co-president (with Susan Masten) of Lansing Area NOW.
