Secular Believers
The film Secular Believers provides an example of how secular beliefs can be included in a religious education syllabus.
It was made for the UK education system and its message is that beliefs, and believers, come in many shapes and sizes, and not all of them can be described as ‘religious’.
"Many religious people think that a secular society is a good thing, because it offers freedom of choice to everybody."

You would think someone that is that opposed to something would at least try to get a bit of an understanding of what it is he hates. The sheer lack of knowledge is so laughable the argument falls on it's face long before the lack of logic can even be scrutinized. I think someone needs a hug...

Orange... can you PM me so we can talk more. I'm really interested in a clean break in a good country. I can do cheap too.

Oh my - the stupidity of the GOPs never ceases to amaze me.

What I find truly nauseating is that they can't see the numerous flaws in their own arguments.

Hey @Orange. Get me out of this fundy country ;) Any openings in NZ for experienced financial writers?

In Costa Rica, where I live, it is almost unheard of to come out as an atheist unless you are a college student or recognized intellectual. I live in a tiny village and everyone knows I'm OK, but I didn't come out as an atheist until they got to know me as a decent, caring person interested in helping out with the community. Interestingly, since coming out as an atheist, I have been having regular visits by the Jehovah's Witness, never contacting me, but leaving tracts on my front gate.

But there is much more acceptance of atheists here in recent years. I think that has a lot to do with the fact that the Catholic church has done a good job of discrediting itself, and people are increasingly open to alternatives, including atheism.
