Humanist Discussion Group
Join us at 7:00 p.m. Thursday, September 22nd at Shanahan's, 7653 Madison St., Forest Park, for an evening of dining and discussion on current issues of interest to Humanists. This month we'll cover articles on the upcoming election http://thehumanist.com/commentary/lets-reasonable-morality-voting and also, if time permits, on the French burkini ban http://thehumanist.com/commentary/humanists-make-burkini-ban, both from The Humanist Magazine. Come and add your opinions (we know you've got some) to our informal but stimulating conversation. We'll be in the back room, past the French doors.
