Vol. 39 No. 09 November 2022 Photos, cartoons (November 2022) From The Onion. In Salt Lake City, former Mormon Ray Matthews, with his wife Cheri Larsen, shows off the digital billboard with his image that is part of FFRF’s national secular values voter awareness campaign. Pete Bullock of Illinois added this paper cover to a Ten Commandments monument just outside the Waukegan, Ill., Police Department. “This seems to be the last Ten Commandments monument in Lake County,” Pete writes. “The ACLU, FFRF and local lawyers all agreed there was little chance of removal. FYI, the paper shroud on the monument lasted two days.” Standing on the steps of the Benton County (Ark.) Courthouse, members of the new Ozarks Chapter of FFRF organized for a Constitution Day event on Sept 17. “It was a complete success!” writes Chris Sweeny (top center). “We engaged the community through peaceful activism and helped amplify the voice of secular citizens. We look forward to growing our membership and will continue to be a vocal presence in our local communities.” Sweeny said the group met at Crystal Bridges Museum in Bentonville, with the original Constitution on display, before marching through town to the steps of the courthouse. “Our group grabbed the attention of patrons walking through the weekly Bentonville Farmer’s Market,” he wrote. “FFRF Member Kirsten Hawkins gave a riveting speech, laying out FFRF’s cause and citing the numerous legislative policies that threaten human rights.” Meet the FFRF staff members who help keep the flowers, bushes and trees around Freethought Hall looking good from spring through fall.
