Declaration on Religion in Public Life

From, here comes the Dublin Declaration on Religion in Public Life that was discussed last weekend at the World Atheist Convention. There’s two Declarations: one is a rewrite of the other.

There’s a lot here I agree with. Declaration A is IMO more positive, but Declaration B is a lot clearer and to-the-point. Either way, I agree with the general thrust of both – religion and politics should NOT mix, and science should remain free from religion.

Of course, if somebody decides to believe in a divine being or beings, they’re free to do so. Just as long as they don’t expect ME to. And as long as they aren’t a complete dickhead about it.
