Where’ve I been? Writing my column for the Freethinker, which was due…today, which by rights I generally take to mean the end of the previous day since it’s 8 hours later over there, but this time I didn’t manage it.
It poured with rain here last night and then it stopped, so now it’s all clear and whitecappy and gorgeous.
Ron Lindsay requests input for the annual meeting of heads of secular organizations.
I’d like your input on these two questions: 1. What specific steps do you think
secular groups should take to increase diversity within our movement, in
particular with respect to the participation of minority groups? 2. As you are
aware, there are some stark differences of opinion within the movement about the
appropriate understanding of feminism and how feminism (however defined) should
influence the practices and mission of secular organizations. How do you think
these differences can best be narrowed or resolved?
Personally, I don’t think they can be, but others are more optimistic. Chime in if you feel like it.
