The Rational Response Squad is sponsoring the "Blasphemy Challenge"
-- to get young people to say out loud that they are atheists! To participate, students can upload movies to YouTube, declaring their atheism while saying, "I deny the Holy Spirit." All participants will get a copy of the movie The God Who Wasn't There
