ONE NIGHT ONLY with Matt Dillahunty at the Secular Hub! 

Matt is a first class secular ( he would say Atheist) broadcaster, debater and speaker. Fresh from his Unholy Trinity tour, and a week of Hell-raising in Australia, he will be appearing in Denver. Tickets are $10 for Hub members and $15 for non-members available at the door only, seating is limited so don’t be late. Doors open at 6pm and the show starts at 7pm with musical entertainment by Pale Blue and preview of the new film project The Gospel. Don’t miss this opportunity to see Matt in Denver where you can ask questions and interact personally with him. He will be sharing his keen insight on debating apologists and tackling the difficult topics like ‘the soul’ and other numinous claims. Learn how to use his gumball and courtroom analogies to demand the philosophical burden of proof of their claims when debating even the most devout theists and apologists.

 

Equality and Religious Freedom by Groff Schroeder: August 2015

Like the 1967 Loving v. Virginia Supreme Court decision regarding interracial marriage equality, the June 26, 2015 Obergefell v. Hodges decision legalizing same-sex marriage upholds equality under the law with regard to equal access to marriage. Both cases were decided under the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment that was ratified in the wake of the Civil War.

This is a social event where non-religious people get together to both strengthen friendships and make new friends. Some people buy food, some just tea or coffee, and some buy nothing. No one leads the events. We just talk, listen, and visit.

A patently ridiculous claim finally rejected by the Supreme Court

Rowan County Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis refuses to grant Constitutional Equality Under the Law by issuing marriage licenses to every qualified couple seeking a marriage license who applies in her office.  Speciffically, she cites "religious liberty" in her statements and says that having "[her] name affixed to the [same sex wedding] certificate would violate [her] [apparently Christian] conscience" - even though the bible says nothing about gay marriage.   The United States Supreme Court has refused to stay a Federal Court Order instructing Ms. Davis to issue the marriage licenses or quit her job as Rowan County Clerk.

The Pope's humanist side by Ken Burrows: July 2015

By their nature, religion and humanism are largely seen as foes. But this is not always true in every respect. In fact, parts of Pope Francis’ recent encyclical on human ecology and the environment, Laudato Si (Praise be to you), share elements of humanist philosophy.

Nous sommes EAME

Nous sommes EAME

by Groff Schroeder

Another mass murder. Another "lone nut."  Another brilliant upcoming objective Public Servant who dared to serve the People (instead of The people) dead - along with many others who dared to associate with him.

Why in America are guns beloved far above true Public Servants?  Why are the taxes that pay their salaries - and fund the sewers, emergency services, public infrastructure, and public welfare we all depend upon - hated, reviled, and evaded in a way that was once illegal but now has become a way of life?
