February 2017 meeting

When: 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Wed 15th Feb.
The Black Horse
166 Friargate
The Black Horse

The topics this month will be (1) As Humanists, committed to equal respect for all, how far should this respect extend to religious belief?
The second topic will be decided on the night and will be either (a) is there anything good to be found in Trump’s election? or (b) should parents be allowed to bring up their children in any way they see fit or are there situations where the state should intervene? This question arises from the recent judicial decision that the harm to a child from ostracism by the Charedi ultra orthodox Jewish faith if it maintained contact with its transgender father would outweigh the harm inflicted by the loss of contact.
David Fleming will lead on these topics
