Hi Kathleen,

The Islam video is 1 1/2  hours long, so we may want to break in the middle to discuss and eat snacks.  What these people have to say, they say with unapologetic certainty.  I, for one, found it a shock to my sometimes Polyanna-like liberalism.  

(There won't be time for The Bro's to have their say.)

I will definitely bring the video for viewing Sunday night, Feb 24th.

Mary

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!
