Meetup details changed: Day Of Solidarity for Black Non-believers & "Islam:What the West needs to Know"

From: Kathleen
Sent on: Saturday, February 23, 2013 12:39 AM

I've updated this Meetup. For more details, see the full listing:
http://www.meetup.com/Rationalist-Society-of-Saint-Louis/events/105267962/

When: Sunday, February 24,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Hoops Hall,  1806 Allen Ave,  St. Louis, MO 63104 

February 24, 2013 is Day of Solidarity for Black Non-Believers!  We will probably have a short video on WEB DuBois or Frederick Douglas, both prominent African American Freethinkers, and also watch a documentary video entitled "Islam:  What the West needs to Know".

We will use our critical thinking skills to watch this video, and see how much we agree with, and how much is hype. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day, and when the religious christian extremists warn about the dangers of Islam, they might be right.  How correct are their assertions?  How much of a threat is a subset of Islam?  

 

Quote about video :

"Western Culture is extremely naiive and in huge denial regarding Islam.  As our leaders publicly exculpate the religion from connections to its misdeeds, Islamists everywhere are actively resurrecting the violence inherent in the Qu'ran.
As a former member of the PLO and new convert to Christianity says, "What part of "kill" don't you understand?  This documentary will hit you over the head with the truth.
"

 Please bring snacks to share!
