Welcome to Dorset Humanists

Dorset Humanists is a welcoming group for humanists, atheists and agnostics who seek to live ethical and fulfilling lives on the basis of reason and humanity. We meet in Bournemouth for informative and enjoyable presentations, debates and discussions on a wide range of subjects including ethics, science, religion, philosophy, politics, our environment and much more. We also organise regular social events.

In this fascinating talk, David Pollock will expose the worrying amount of religious influence in Europe and how non-believers often struggle to get a fair hearing in the corridors of power. David also reveals that, while the EU has standardised many laws across Europe, member-state government support for religion exhibits a bewildering amount of variation.

For example:
· In many European countries, the church is paid for by taxpayers
· The European Court of Human Rights has just upheld the Italian Government’s right to insist on the display of crucifixes in all state schools ·
In Hungary, 190 different religions are officially recognised
Everyone welcome – Free entry
