The Sunday Assembly

#1 Postby Nick » July 10th, 2015, 9:33 pm

We, in the UK, don't know how lucky we are....

Take a look at this: https://richarddawkins.net/2015/07/sanderson-jones-openly-secular/

Maybe we should be rather more pro-active. In a time where religious pressure in widespread, is it appropriate for us to acquiesce....?

Yes I am sure this is a good thing and of course, every little helps. The coffee and cake sound Ok but I would not be so keen on the dancing and the pop songs and the socialising - but that is me.

The analogy with Gay Lib is a good one: in a town where everyone is scared of expressing gay feelings or religious doubts, it is natural to think you're the only one. Once a few people start to 'come out' more will follow, and soon it becomes clear that a lot of people have been pretending to be straight, or xtian, or Muslim, or whatever.
Secularism is cool in the uk; I don't think we need Sunday Assembly. In near theocracies, like some parts of the US, it may be the only way some people will ever find the courage. It is starting to break open. Send messages of support.
