     This group is a philosophical home for me. The presentations and discussions are terrific. The line between church and state must be guarded if we are to have a secular government. I am grateful every time I realize that I am not alone in this effort.

     Thanks Cheryl for organizing a great meeting with ACLU at O'Conner's. It was good to hear about legal challenge's and legislative actions to further freethought in Oregon. It is good to gather with like minded individuals at the local level.

     Don't know how to answer this one. I'm Sheila Cook and I wasn't included in the list of attendees below. This comment was for the meeting a few weeks ago at O'Connors. My comment on the evening's topic....which I didn't think to share last night is this......I don't think we have a purpose any more than an ant or any other creature has. Our purpose is to survive. We happen to be here, we exist and we have evolved to what we are today. To give purpose to our existence elevates us above all other creatures and I'm not sure we are any better except for the fact that we have a brain.... which makes us capable of amazing things ... to what purpose?. At least the other creatures don't exploit the others for the purpose of self-aggrandizement.

     I am glad this organization exists. Regardless of whether we agree on everything regarding religion / spirituality or not, it is important to have a place where an intelligent discussion on important subject such as separation of state and religion can take place, a place to learn and to meet like-minded people. I am also thankful for the newsletter handout which has so much interesting information!

     Congratulations to Will and his volunteers for pulling off a fantastic event! This was our very first Humanist Film-Fest that didn't go into the red.

     It's important to support the Freedom From Religion Foundation. They do the work of seeing that the separation of state and church is upheld. Non-theists are the probiotics of a secular government serving a pluralistic society. We support the immune system that is resisting the infection of theocracy. We need to support the organization that is doing that important work. I can only afford to support a couple of organizations, and FFRF is one of them.

  • Freedom From Religion Foundation Portland Area

     This lecture was my first contact with the group. The Portland FFRF group appear to be reasonable and civil people to me....... this is not always the case with "political" groups.

     This meeting finally gave me the push I needed to come out of the closet. I ordered my pin tonight to use as a talking point to get me started. I love this group!!!

     Great job, Jesse! It took me back down memory lane! Although Punkers, at least at this at this show, look a lot different than in 'the day'. Hail Skeptic Punks!!!
