What we're about

Freethinkers of Colorado Springs was formed in 1993 to support and create community for non-religious people in the area. We are focused on educating ourselves and the community about church state separation, the right to practice or avoid religion, and the power and promise of reason and science. We are eager to share with all atheists, humanist, skeptics and secularists of all races, nationalities and backgrounds.

Our goal is the develop a community of people to share life's journey with. We therefore ask that people who want to join our group use their real name. A first name would be fine, particularly if implies, or at least suggests, whatever gender you might present as. A name with a middle initial , or last name initial, could be used too. Or like most of our members, you could use your real and full name.

Also, we ask a couple of questions of people who want to join. We will look at those answers while considering if we want to add you to our group. We ask that you answer those questions honestly and with meaning. After you have joined, you can go back and change your answers if you wish.

You can learn more about our group at www.FreethinkersCS.org , or at Facebook.com/Freethinkers and Humanists of Colorado Springs.

Secular Sunday Brunch and group discussion at Panera Bread

• What we'll do We usually have 10 to 15 people, recent ages ranged from 18 to 75 ( heavy on the older end). Most are X-christian Freethinkers, but some were raised free of religion. We have a few self proclaimed Xtians who attend, but I suspect their preachers would brand them as heathens. We follow a free flow of conversation model, in a gently moderated discussion. Sometimes members arrive with a passion to discuss a news event, or a religious earthquake that just rocked our nation or community. We start there and let the conversation direct itself. We do insist on respect for other members, not necessarily their opinions. And their right to speak their mind. We'll try to get a new-comer to talk as much as they will. We all love new stories. But we ask that people yield the flow when they run out of material and notice others engaging in side conversations. • What to bring An Open mind and a willingness to LISTEN. • Important to know
