Shropshire Humanists was formed in 2006 as a voice for those in the county and around who live decent and useful lives without superstitious belief and without religion. We are affiliated to Humanists UK and come together to discuss relevant issues and to meet up with those of a like mind.
We believe that the growth of fundamentalist religious beliefs can represent a real threat. Although we have no wish to dictate what other people think we are firmly of the view that religious beliefs and practices are essentially private matters, and should have no influence in our legislative system or our state-funded education system.
Shropshire Humanists aims to campaign for those issues both locally and nationally and aspires to grow to provide a local voice. A welcome is given to those who have sympathy with these objectives or wish to find out more. Further details on our group can be found at: https://shropshirehumanist.wordpress.com/
