LSS: John Catt - Is Secularism Necessary in a Multi-Faith Society?

Description: John Catt 'Secularism – Is it a Necessity in a Multi-Faith Society?'

The three element of secularism are:
1. Separation of religious institutions from the state.
2. Freedom of thought and religion.
3. No state discrimination on the grounds of religion or belief.
The talk will examine the history of these ideas and their necessity in a world of multifaith societies.

John is a long term member and treasurer of Leicester Secular Society.

All welcome - admission free - contributions towards expenses welcome.

In the meantime, you may find this Leicester Mercury article by Asha Patel interesting - it explains some of the background to why we joined almost 300 people protesting at the Indian Government's apparent violation of the country's 1948 secular constitution, with the passing of recent discriminatory laws favouring adherents of certain religions over others (and atheists). https://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/news/leicester-news/protests-were-held-leicester-city-3699711
