People have been asking me what Secular Humanist Society is about and what we hope to accomplish. Our most important goal is fair treatment and equal rights for all humans. We support the LGBT community. There are over 1000 species world wide that are born homosexual. To think humans can't be is completely irrational and scientifically unfounded. They deserve every right we do as humans, couples, etc. There's a big misconception about us wanting "God out of schools." We simply want fair treatment for everyone. At most assemblies, there is a period of silence, feel free to pray to whatever deity you choose. Your kids can pray over their food if they want. And the kids that choose not to pray at assemblies shouldn't have to hear their principals, teachers, etc. praying over everyone. This is equal treatment for all. Christians pushing God back into schools is giving special rights to a single religion. How would you feel sending your kid to a school where they started praying to Allah? You would hate it and demand action. That's what we're going through but with Christianity. We're not taking prayer out of schools and we're not saying your kids cant pray. It just doesn't have to involve everyone when not everyone is christian and some don't want to hear it. This is just two hot topics to give you an idea where we stand, feel free to ask us any questions you may have. Through Secular Humanist Society we will be doing many charity events, fundraisers, volunteer efforts to better our communities of East Texas and show secularists are normal people just like all of you and want nothing more than to better the world with equal human rights and flourishing humanity through science.
