Introduction

Hi. I'm more or less a life-long atheist, and interested in the politics of religion and culture.

COMPULSORY Q: Pls describe your position on religion/faith e.g. atheist, naturalist, 'agnostic', religious doubter, religious, OR feel free to give a description that suits you. (This is not to label you, it helps to know the make-up of the group)

Atheist

COMPULSORY Q: Why do you want to join? (if faith/religion bothers you, what aspects in particular? (Helps us tailor activities to your concerns (within our remit of "peacefully promote reason/atheism")). Pls write as much or as little as you like.

It is important for the non-religious to provide counter-voices to the powerful institutional structures that support religion. Religion's interference in public life, its demands for privileged treatment and its exploitation of individual believers need to be opposed.

Where did you hear about us?

CLHG

(You're welcome to be a social or even a silent member, & there's absolutely no pressure) - but would you like to be involved in actively challenging faith yourself in any way? Petitions, leafleting etc, or something else?

Maybe, depending on the likely real effectiveness of the action

If so, what kind of issues are most emotive for you? What kind of activism do you prefer - humourous/cheeky or more direct? Any other ideas you'd like to share at the moment?

Activism that works, and that does not demonise individual believers nor damage cultural tolerance in general.

    These were my thoughts exactly, Ian - I couldn't have done anything better with your tenner!
