I'm very excited to announce that in keeping with recent trends in socially conscious movements (and conference planning in general) Imagine No Religion 5 has its own anti-harassment policy. This policy is the result of extensive discussion and revision between all organizers of the event, and is mostly based on language used by successful secular gatherings like Skepticon.
The BC Humanists are proud to be co-sponsoring Imagine No Religion 5 conveniently located in Richmond, BC from June 5-7, 2015. With a speaker roster including Carolyn Porco, Miryam Namazie, and Richard Dawkins among many others, this conference is not to be missed. Tickets are selling fast, so get yours now.
As some of you already know, this year's Pride parade had an unexpected visitor—a radical pastor who lied about his affiliation in order to hand out homophobic literature disguised as condoms along the parade route. I have nothing to say to this man, but he did have several younger followers with him and I thought it might be possible to reach them. To that end I've written the following open letter.
