Penn State’s Time to “Stone an Atheist”

Have a dollar and want to throw something at heathens? Well then here’s the event for you.

The Atheist/Agnostic Association is hosting a “Stone an Atheist” fundraiser, which consists of three days throwing water balloons at Penn State’s own resident atheists and non-believers. (Only because throwing actual rocks is against school policy)

As a tongue-in-cheek phrasing, the group plans to charge $1 for two balloons, or 75 cents for one, and have anyone willing to pay throw balloons at the AAA group. At the end of the semester the group donates money from fundraising to Village Reach, a non-profit organization that helps provide medical care in third world countries.

Christian? Pelt the atheists. Jewish? Pelt the atheists. Muslim? Pelt the atheists. Any member of any religious group can pelt their religious opposites in he name of charity.

Also the club will provide information and conversation about atheism and the organization itself for any curious parties. From September 18-21, 10 a.m.-4 p.m, the non-believers will be outside the HUB lawn ready to be “stoned” for a good cause.
