    We must convey that American secularism is not anti-religious, but is rather the common meeting ground of all religions and philosophies, consisting of the mundane everyday stuff that has nothing to do with religion. We must stress that our system in the US is better than that, in say France, where all religious expression is discouraged, if not forbidden in certain settings. The extreme example was the former Soviet Union, which forbade all religion.

    Further, we must convey that the anti-establishment clause of the 1st Amendment acts as a barrier to prevent one religion from taking over and
    becoming the de facto state religion. We must make clear that religious organizations who attempted to inveigle themselves into the public school system, their efforts are in opposition to the 1st amendment.

    Furthermore we must be clear that because our interest is in preserving the Constitution, our position is a conservative position, not a liberal one.

    Why I'm not longer a Dawkins fan? Because he is an idiot about obvious Truths. “It’s funny how these confident, cocksure prophets of atheism-who barely have time to take a breath between slamming the tenets of Christianity and Judaism-often get curiously tongue-tied and shy when the subject of Islam comes up.” Don’t want your religion attacked? Behead a few attackers. It doesn’t take many in the face of cowardice. Dawkins dishonest quote is HERE http://www.fraterslibertas.com/2013/02/what-is-this-islam-of-which-you-speak.html

      "...lives to fight another day." Thank You Tom Reeves!

      "...imperative that we unite and function as one." So true Albert - Thank you. Also - as individuals who care that the human race continues (right?) we must not just comment on websites... Get out! Get Active and do what ever we can to make the difference...

    • Rick R.

      Orson: What are you actually doing to make a difference then?

      Dawkins is becoming older and physically weaker.

      Before and after he dies, who will step up to take on what he's been committed to all this time further? Us!

  • Rick R.

    I was there. I did not get a chance to log-in and let everyone here know, and then meet some of you there. I apologize for that.

    Okay. Suggestions on what we all can do to get totally involved and make a REAL difference for the future of humanity?

    Bill Moyers' Moyers & Co. is featuring this subject today and this weekend:

    Fighting Creeping Creationism

    This week, 19-year-old Zack Kopplin talks about fighting the creep of creationist curricula into public school science classes, and publicly funded vouchers that end up supporting creationist instruction. Also on the program, journalist and historian Susan Jacoby talks with Bill about the role secularism and intellectual curiosity have played throughout America’s history.

    Free thinking requires discourse, discussion, even disagreement and conflict. If we were all always on the same page, we would be fundamentalists, no better than those we criticize and reject. If we are all united as one, then which point of view would we choose? We grow trough diversity and the exchange of ideas. Thank our lucky stars (or God, Vishnu, Buddha, Allah) for that.

    I found the presentations informative. The Good News Club movement was unknown to me. This was really about Katherine Stewart and her work in investigating this issue. Dawkins was just along for the ride. Rather than making the opposition to the Good News Clubs a humanist or secularist issue, it should be an issue of the Good News Clubs damaging the religious freedom of everybody. Get the Catholics, the Episcopalians, the Lutherans, and even the Mormons in on it, as none of these groups are Christians in the eyes of the Good-Newsers. Eroding separation of Church and State harms everybody, not just the non-religious.

    Anyone else disappointed in the presentations? The material was there, but the delivery was lacking. Perhaps my expectations were too high after seeing the presentations at the reason rally. Btw, WTF was up with the audio problems? Doesn't this venue specialize in this format? I can't think of any excuse for the number of technical difficulties...

    Informative evening, laying out quite clearly the need for humanists to be proactive in educating school boards and administrations about the content and goals of CEF and their targeting Denver with Good News Club in 2013.

    Good information. Presentations could have been smoother.

    Voltaire would be outraged at Dawkins' cowardly hypocrisy.

    I'm so looking forward to this event. I took tonight off from work to make sure I'd be there.

    How is the parking situation at that place?

    February 28, 2013

    • Ruth M.

      They have their own parking garage. It's off Speer just before Champa past Sprout. There is a cost to park there- about $12.00. There is also meter parking around and those pay-to-park lots as well.

      February 28, 2013

  • Ruth M.

    Since I work down the street I will be there early. I'm meeting someone by the blue bear so that's where I'll be for a bit if anyone else wants to meet up.

    February 28, 2013

  • Albert

    I just got my ticket. Is anyone coordinating a meeting place? Or are we all just doing our own thing?

    February 26, 2013

    • Eric M.

      Hi Albert. No, we're just doing our own thing. Of course if you wanted to propose a meeting place for a drink afterwards (and you gave everyone a way to find you) then I'd imagine you'd have a few folks stop by:).

      Since I have never met anyone in the group and my husband has not yet relocated to CO, I would be interested in meeting up before hand with people.

  • Albert

    Its incredible... I was a childrens pastor and regretfully I lead many children over my 20 years to christian prison. It just kills me to think of it. Im really excited to see this because I want to know how this group works from the inside and how I can help.
