Breaking news: New law in USA explicitly protecting humanists

#1 Postby Manel » December 17th, 2016, 9:16 am

International Religious Freedom Bill Signed by President Obama, Includes Language to Protect Humanists, Nontheists

Here's the link:

Congratulations for all of us. I hope the rest of the countries follow this example. In Spain we're fighting for something similar. We have religious freedom, but not "consciousness freedom"

Celebrate and have a nice day

sounds good news especially from USA - is Obama doing his best to improve things before he is gone and it is too late ?

Probably there'll be no more good changes in this sense in the USA in a long time, but this law is a very important reference for the rest of us to ask for similar laws, and specifically in Spain to show that humanism is highly recognized in other nations, so I'm very happy with this.
