HAT FORUM, Sat. Aug 4, 11am 242 Bloor Street w

HAT Forum
DATE: Saturday, August 4, 11am - 1:30 pm
LOCATION:  OISE, 242 Bloor Street West  Room 10-200/204
TOPIC:  Liberal religion
FACILITATOR: Moses Klein
What is liberal religion? How does it differ both from humanism and from more conservative or fundametalist forms of religion? What do liberal religious communities offer their congregants? Is liberal religion in decline, and would that be a good or bad thing? How do we as secular humanists relate to religious groups that espouse some humanistic ideals?
(This Forum is inspired by Margaret Wente's column "The collapse of the liberal church" in the July 28 Globe and Mail: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/commentary/the-collapse-of-the-liberal-church/article4443228/)
