About Muslimish: We are a group of Ex-Muslims and Muslims of varying degrees of religiosity. We come together from diverse backgrounds, and cover a broad spectrum of views and positions from atheist to agnostic to theist, ex-Muslim to cultural Muslim to believing Muslim, and more. Amidst this diversity, we share common cultural traditions and come from Muslim backgrounds. We are united by a common goal of fostering a questioning atmosphere. We criticize ideas without criticizing the people that hold them – for no idea should be so sacred to be beyond human curiosity and discussion. We believe we can question religious beliefs without adopting discriminatory attitudes towards our communities. We encourage skeptical thinking but deplore all forms of bigotry including racism, sexism, classism, anti-Semitism, and ageism. We believe in a strict separation of church/mosque and state and strongly feel that no state should impose religious or irreligious beliefs. All citizens are entitled to exercise their free speech and live without fear of persecution or censorship. Such a society would serve both the religious and irreligious.

What we're about

Public Group

We are the Boston Area Chapter of the American Humanist Association. Basically, we are the people living in the Boston Metropolitan area (extending into New Hampshire and Rhode Island) who believe in Humanism and try to live a Humanistic life and who like to get together in association with each other in formal or informal humanistically oriented activities. The pages of this web site will describe what these activities and associations and services currently are. We are governed by our Chapter By-Laws. We hope that you are able to make use of them and that you will join with us on occasion.
