Al Stefanelli, Georgia State Director, American Atheists, Inc. was our speaker at March’s meeting. Mr. Stephanelli spoke on issues related to freethought. He touched upon some of the challenges that we face trying to present atheism in a good light, which is particularly relevant since there has been more and more media attention given to atheists in the past several years. He hoped that secular community would unite and promote common messages we all agree upon as freethinkers. He also said we should cooperate with progressives across the spectrum of beliefs, including progressive Christians. Mr. Stephanelli believes that we need to promote fellowship in our own groups as well if we are to grow as a movement. It was an interesting meeting that was largely an open discussion. Thanks to all who participated.
