In 2006, atheism advocate and Los Angeles-based constitutional attorney Edward Tabash came to Grand Rapids to speak at Itasca Community College and the Grand Rapids Area Library about how the Bible is not a fit guide for morality in the modern world. According to an article published in the Herald-Review in April of that year, both talks generated a fair amount of controversy, with a number of people calling the college and the library to voice their complaints that the college is “promoting atheism” and wondering if the library used any public funds to bring in such a speaker.

Despite, or perhaps because of, the controversial subject matter, there were more than 100 people in attendance at each of his talks.

    Why should the school need to be doing anything on religious topics? Religious and non religious groups are allowed to meet separately and should be open to all who would be interested. Separation of church and state?
