Chestatee High School Prayer

American Humanist Association - Thu, 08/28/2014 - 12:00
In response to the American Humanist Association's potential lawsuit against Chestatee High School in Gainesville, Georgia for violating the separation of church and state by supporting coach-led prayer during football games, The Christian News Network reports that students and adults gathered to pray at the school's football field. This video was allegedly taken on August 26, 2014. The speaker is a parent with children who attend Chestatee High, not the football coach. The American Humanist Association staunchly supports a student's individual right to pray in public schools. The speaker in this video clearly distorts our intentions and the facts of the case, where it is unconstitutional for any school official---teacher or coach---to lead students in prayer. Keep prayer in churches. Keep education in schools.

Leo Igwe: Witch Hunts, Misogyny and Enlightenment in Black Communities

British Humanist Association - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 08:27
Nigerian human rights activist, Leo Igwe, is a renowned campaigner against witchcraft accusations. Speaking to London Black Atheists and the Central London Humanist Group, this lecture focusses on the harmful effects of the belief in witchcraft on individuals and society. Witchcraft belief is rampant in many countries, and has led to violent assaults and murder. In the UK, the murder of 15 year old Kristy Bamu and 8 year old Victoria Climbie, were widely reported in the British media. Leo Igwe asks 'What role does religion play in Witchcraft belief and how do we combat it?' 'Can enlightenment combat the malign effects of witchcraft belief in black and minority ethnic communities worldwide?' Following his acclaimed presentation in 2013 to London Black Atheists, 'Breaking the Taboo of Atheism in Black Communities', Leo Igwe delivers a startling analysis of Witchcraft belief and the imperative of enlightenment.

Rob Boston: Religious Freedom: What it is and What it is Not - AHA Con 2014

American Humanist Association - Wed, 06/25/2014 - 10:56
Religious liberty in the US has traditionally been interpreted as an individual's right to worship (or not) as she or he sees fit. But lately, religious conservatives have been working to redefine religious freedom as a right to ignore secular laws and discriminate against others. This talk explains why this is wrong and must be resisted. Robert Boston is an author, the director of communications of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, the editor of Church and State magazine. Boston also serves on the board of directors of the AHA.
