Secularism

Humanism and Secularism share much common ground.

As Freethinkers we can't be dogmatic in our definition of Secularism. Something along these lines has been proposed:

Leicester Secular Society welcomes as members anyone (in Leicestershire or beyond) who:

  • believes in practical humanity (the need for us to help each other);
  • advocates free speech and the need to keep religion and the state apart;
  • enjoys rational argument based on reality and the company of free thinking people;
  • supports an open society based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (opens in a new window).

What do you think? Come along and discuss it with members in our friendly hall, or read some of the pages below
