I cannot productively intervene at this point regarding the controversies surrounding CFI, and my general perspective on secular humanism in the USA is from a practical standpoint pointless with respect to the realistic alternatives open at this historical moment, but perhaps on another occasion I will sum up my take on the situation based on my very limited knowledge. Hopefully, we'll hear that Norm has achieved success in whatever he undertakes from this point on; the fate of AAH, though, is not tied to his. I think I've done my duty by Norm by publicizing his complaint as vigorously as possible without taking a specific position on the facts of the case or on warring factions within CFI.
PS: I wasn't aware that Jamila was officially a comedienne, though I have noticed her to be very funny at times.
