Declaration on Religion in Public Life

From atheist.ie, 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.
