COMPULSORY Q (no membership if not answered): Pls describe yr position on religion/faith e.g. atheist, naturalist, 'agnostic', religious doubter, religious, OR any description that best describes you. (Not to label you, just to know group make-up)

I look forward to lurking AND sharing in the LAAG forums.

COMPULSORY Q: Why do you want to join? (if faith/religion bothers you, what aspects in particular? (Helps us tailor activities to your concerns (within our remit of "peacefully promote reason/atheism")). Pls write as much or as little as you like.

What bugs me most about religion is it's venal corruption of our evolutionarily adaptive child-like faith and trust in parental generation authority, into an adult, internalised, uncritical respect for the BS of slack-witted dogma, lame-brained clerics, and authoritarian ministers, both religious and secular; by these means and others, religion serves as an ideological weapon wielded against we 99%ers by the elitist 1%, in order that their obscene wealth and ecosphere-wrecking power be not questioned, contended against, and overthrown.

Where did you hear about us?

The Sunday Assembly forums

(You're welcome as a social or even a silent member, & there's absolutely no pressure - but would you want to be involved (at some stage) in actively challenging faith in any way? Petitions, leafleting etc, or something else?

Yes, I'm more than happy to stand up for reason and atheism in public

If so, what kind of issues are most emotive for you? What kind of activism do you prefer - humourous/cheeky or more direct? Any other ideas you'd like to share at the moment?

Socioeconomic, ideological, political, and revolutionary issues, laced with biting satire and surrealistic dark humour

Introduction

Faithless & faithful, anti-theist & amiable, surealista & skeptic, loving & lunatic, science fanboy & freethinking socialist, rational humanist & radical anthropologist.
