Blas­phemy dis­cus­sion at meet­ing

The Sligo Champion - - NEWS -

NORTH West Hu­man­ists are host­ing a pub­lic meet­ing with guest speaker Bob Rees to speak about blas­phemy.

The coun­try goes to the polls on Oc­to­ber 26 th next to vote on a ref­er­en­dum to re­move blas­phemy as an of­fence from the Con­sti­tu­tion. Mr Rees is a long time hu­man­ist, au­thor of Sec­u­lar Hu­man­ism, Skep­ti­cism and Rea­son and a reg­u­lar con­trib­u­tor to the Ir­ish Free­thinker and Hu­man­ist mag­a­zine.

Sec­u­lar Hu­man­ism of­fers an easy in­tro­duc­tion for new­com­ers to hu­man­ism.

It ex­plains what hu­man­ism is, how it works, and where it came from. It de­scribes what it is to be a scep­ti­cal hu­man­ist, and it dis­cusses some of the moral dilem­mas fac­ing Hu­man­ists in the 21st cen­tury. The meet­ing gets un­der­way at 8pm tonight (Oc­to­ber 9 th) in the Radis­son Ho­tel Sligo.
