My name is Karen Butler-Libdeh. I'm a lawyer working in the financial services sector. I have also recently completed a masters in middle east politics. I enjoy cigar smoking and drinking Chianti.
COMPULSORY - Why do you want to join, and what bothers you most about faith/religion? (We do take notice of these answers (!), so what YOU want is heard (...within the remit of "peacefully promoting reason/atheism :-))
Its political influence. Its presence in public debate. Its role in education.
There is absolutely no pressure to do so (you're welcome to be a silent member), but would you like to be involved in actively standing up for reason/atheism in (peaceful & good natured) outside events such as at Speakers Corner, or rallies etc?
I'm interested in participating in events that are peaceful and legal.
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?
Abortion rights. Getting religion out of schools.
