Movie Night: The Hitch

Humanists Doing Good will be showing a documentary about Christopher Hitchens. He was a British-American author, polemicist, debater and journalist. One of his more famous books is titled God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything. His confrontational style of debate made him both a lauded and controversial figure. He berated such public figures as Mother Teresa, Bill Clinton, Henry Kissinger, Lady Diana, and Pope Benedict XVI. Many consider him to be one of the most articulate and contrarian intellectuals of his generation.

Love him or hate him, knowing more about him will help you further understand the modern nonreligious movement and one of its central figures. We will use the available time after the documentary for discussion.

    Actually, the change made it possible for me to plan to attend this event, so I'm not too upset!

    We will be showing the video at the Community Room of the Mesa County Central Public Library (443 N. 6th St.) instead at the same scheduled time (6 - 8 pm). Sorry for this late change of venue.

    We were called by The Commons and they have had a scheduling problem on their end that translates to us needing to change our venue and possibly our time for this event. We are scrambling to try and relocate it to the library and have turned in the necessary paperwork, but we're now waiting to hear back from them. We are trying to keep the date and time the same while just changing the location, but it may prove necessary to change the date and time as well. The one thing we know at this time is that we will not be at the Garden Room on Wednesday. Please stay tuned for more info.

    I am glad they changed it. Unless something comes up hubby and I are planning on making the trek to Junction for this one. Anyone want to do dinner before hand?

    We have had to change the date by one day because The Commons called and let us know that they needed the room on the 28th We've therefore rescheduled for Wednesday the 27th instead.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
