COMPULSORY Q (no membership if not answered): Pls describe yr position on religion/faith e.g. atheist, naturalist, 'agnostic', religious doubter, religious, OR any description that best describes you. (Not to label you, just to know group make-up)

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.

The privilege of religion in this country. There is no separation of church and state; how can there be with seats in the Upper House designated for Bishops - defenders of the faith? Also religions get a lot of money for schools. Schools should all be secular, dedicated to factual history and the sciences. It is not right to have religious assemblies which Children of an alternative faith or no faith need to be excluded from.

Where did you hear about us?

Google search hoping to find a group with shared views

(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?

I do not have the capacity to organise such events but I would like to be involved as much as possible

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?

I appreciate the ability for humour to turn heads but it must be clever with it to make people think and take note. Most of the time I think a direct approach is needed.

Introduction

I was brought up C of E but when allowed to choose whether or not to remain in the faith I chose not as it could not logically or rationally exist. Am sad that so many people don't drop religion at the same time as their belief in other fairy tales.

What Mark R. is saying about this Meetup Group

I'm looking forward to getting to know the group members better as there was not much time for socialising at this event.
