Melody Hensley honored at P.R.O.G.R.E.S.S closing ceremonies: A P.R.O.G.R.E.S.S special report

Note:  Every ten years, extraterrestrials and their human skeptical allies hold a P.R.O.G.R.E.S.S convention at Bolingbrook’s Clow UFO base.  This is the first convention since 1993 that skeptics have been represented by The Committee for Skeptical Inquiry and it’s parent group, Center For Inquiry.  The following story is a highlight from the convention.

By Reporter X

Center for Inquiry Washington DC Director Melody Hensley received a 20 minute standing ovation from P.R.O.G.R.E.S.S attendees after being awarded a Skepticism under Fire award.

Vice-council of the Interstellar Alliance for the Advancement of Science La Gost told the audience at Clow UFO Base that she received the award for creating the upcoming Women in Secularism Conference.  

“She has faced online harassment from those who claim to be skeptical and rational.  My friends, anyone who attacks a person’s physical appearance can claim to be skeptical, but we do not consider them part of Earth’s skeptical community.”

Hensley addressed the audience by holographic project. She was obviously moved by the standing ovation.

“Between the parody accounts, the online bullies, and so-called friends turning their backs on me, it’s been hard. It is great to be receive support from the stars, and from my real friends.”

Hensley announced that Women in Secularism 2 would have an extraterrestrial track of speakers, and announced three confirmed extraterrestrial speakers.  She also announced the registration link on the Interstellar Internet.  All genders, she said, are welcome to attend.

“Women in Secularism 2 is about honoring the women who fight superstition across the galaxy, and honoring those women who fight to prepare humanity for entry in the interstellar community.  We have a long way to go, but we aren’t tired!”
