The following is a recent ad that was used to promote the Center for Inquiry Joint Conference which was held in Tampa, Florida, last January.
A Council for Secular Humanism/Center for Inquiry Joint Conference
What is secular humanism in action? It’s not hard to find: from Oregon to Rhode Island, secular values are triumphing over ignorance and bigotry thanks to the work of brave activists. But at the same time, sick children are being denied medical treatment because of their parents’ religious beliefs. State constitutions, besieged by influence from the religious right, are bending rules to fund religious organizations. In classrooms, in courthouses, and even within families, defending secular values and humanitarian rights has never been more important.
What can we do to ensure that we are changing the world, maximizing our impact, furthering our goals—how can we keep moving forward? Feel the pulse of the secular humanist movement and find out what you can do to empower your own community at the Council for Secular Humanism and Center for Inquiry joint annual conference. “Moving Secularism Forward” will bring together some of the most respected leaders and activists in the freethinking world to educate, inspire, and unite secular humanists from across the country.Remember the focus of secular humanism is that we are free. If you read this ad, you would come to the conclusion that only secular humanists are free. Evidently, non-secular humanists are not free to make decisions about their children, health issues; and the religious right are not free to “defend their rights.”
But it’s not my rights that concern me, it’s the all-out attack on a righteous God that concerns me…and it should concern you as well.

✞ True Freedom is given to us by God to be used in turn to worship Him.
