There’s a reason we all love Jessica Ahlquist
Remember a few months back when young student Jessica Ahlquist fought to have prayer banners taken down at her school? Since then, she’s received death threats, been called an “evil little thing” by her state representative, and managed to secure herself roughly 40k in scholarship monies from atheist organizations. Here she is on CNN discussing how she lost her faith, and why Rhode Island State Representative Peter Palumbo is a petty bitch (my words).
Listening to the interview, it becomes obvious why she’s become such a darling of the scene: she’s smart, articulate, pretty, and she seems to have a natural rapport with the camera. She also manages to make her detractors seem like ignorant douchebags. What else can you ask for?
