Announcing a new Meetup for CFI Portland Meetup Group!

What: Discussion: Between New Atheism and Accommodationism

When: Monday, November 8, 2010 7:00 PM

Where: Java Vivace
2287 NW Pettygrove St.
Portland, OR 97210
(503) 228-3667

The discussion group will now be held in TWO locations simultaneously (Portland and Beaverton). This helps keep the groups small plus makes travel convenient. Please only RSVP for one.


Come join us for an engaging topic-centered discussion. Java Vivace will serve you your choice of poison (coffee, tea, beer, wine etc.) and delicious food (unique crepes), while your fellow CFIers will serve up the conversation.


The topic for November is:


Between New Atheism and Accommodationism



What are the benefits and disadvantages of each strategy? Do they hamper progress? Can we find a middle ground?



From About.com: "As the name implies, the main principle upon which accommodationists base their position is the idea that the government should “accommodate” religious needs and the desires of religious institutions whenever possible. When it comes to the separation of church and state, there should not be quite so much separation and a bit more interaction."

All are welcome. Cost for Non-CFI members: $2. Free for members­.

If you would like to suggest future topics or make any other suggestions, please send them to the organizers.

Thanks,
-Glenn
