The Inherent Worth of Everyone

Hugh Taft-Morales, Leader, Baltimore Ethical Society

Details: At the heart of Ethical Humanism is a commitment to honor the inherent worth of every person. Of course we are flawed and frail creatures – and won’t always live up to this commitment. But declaring that everyone has worth is important in a world that devalues people left and right: from the one million helpless infants each year that die the day they are born, to prisoners in solitary confinement for years, to many elderly we warehouse in substandard nursing homes, to those without money or power we mistreat. When will we create a society where the worth of every person is protected as precious? Hugh Taft-Morales explores this challenge and calls on Ethical Humanists, including himself, to do better.

Speaker Bio: Hugh Taft-Morales joined the Baltimore Ethical Society as its professional leader in 2010, the same year he was certified by the American Ethical Union as an Ethical Culture Leader. He also serves as Leader of the Ethical Humanist Society of Philadelphia.

    An incredibly educational and interesting talk by Hugh, followed by some very good questions. There is room for many opinions withing the Ethical Society and humanist groups regarding 'inherent worth of everyone.'
