MythCon V

I could post this under a variety of topics. Mythicist Milwaukee started out as a group exploring the existence of Jesus but has grown into something broader over the last few years with their annual convention. They recognized the typical white and liberal audience they attracted and reached out to different speakers to break that mold. This caused some problems, as the bomb threat this year highlights. People like Matt Dillahunty are now boycotting the event. I went for the third time this year and spoke to mostly people in MAGA hats. Discussion is heated of course, sometimes a circus, but there is also a lot of respect being shown and awareness of the problems of being divided.

It’s all up on You Tube if you’re interested.
