Well first this was a Freethought meeting, not a humanist meeting. I say this because I really was disappointed by some of what I heard. I clearly heard one person bashing people for their religious beliefs. This person was an active member for quite some time. I don't want to associate with people who have an intolerance for others' beliefs; that is not what I'm about. There was something else similar that I thought I heard from another, however, I can't be sure because they were a little difficult to understand. I'm very new to the group, and I don't know the official stance that humanists take on acceptance of religious differences. I'm leaving out details out of respect for the individuals involved. I'm only sharing this out of concern. I don't want to pick on anyone. I would appreciate some feedback if anyone has anything.
