This group is for people who formerly or never believed in gnomes, goblins and gods to meet up and be openly faithless. In and around West Chester, Phoenixville, Coatesville, Kennett, Paoli, and all of Chester County, there are almost as many churches as there are car dealerships and far more churches than coffee shops or bookstores.
Though we aren't affiliated with this group we align closely with this mission: "The mission of Openly Secular is to eliminate discrimination and increase acceptance by getting secular people - including atheists, freethinkers, agnostics, humanists and nonreligious people - to be open about their beliefs."
We hope to be a beacon of reason for those that consider themselves secular, atheist, agnostic, humanist, and/or a free thinker. If you support the separation of church and state, civil rights, LGBTQ equality, social justice, and if you are searching for a place to ask questions, you have found it. If you are searching for an inclusive group that is here to listen and not to judge - as this is a judgment-free zone, you have found it. We stand on the side of equality, not division. You do not have to agree with everything everyone says, but we do expect kindness, compassion, and civility from all that participate in our events.
Please join us. It is time to wander off the blanket and live, live, live. We look forward to meeting you!
