Atheists have our own ideas about what is just and what is unjust. This group will explore the elusive concept of justice. Topics include racial injustice, death penalty, imprisonment, crime, and other aspects of justice in modern society and in history. Without gods, what is the basis for justice? What do humanists and others say about justice? What do you think about current controversies and cases regarding justice or injustice?

YES, we do to all of the above! When I came back to my art (and the art and magick community) five years ago..I realized that I was not fitting in (I had to ditch the labels we used in the 70s, 80;s, like: "shamanic trance performance artist", etc. I didn't know how to describe what I do so I came up with trans-surrealism...which basically means that: "I am never coming down (from having been in the fringe culture for decades)...I am now lucid in this state of mind all the time (or clinically insane)...hence Trans-Surrealist! I've Crossed the Abyss!
I just saw your post on the gay atheist group. So true, and I was just discussing that yesterday. I meet up with a bunch of older progressives (mostly college professors, and mostly atheist Jews) on Sunday morning, and we spoke about the one or two males who show up, and how well they fit in and communicate. I pointed out that I thought most males don't communicate well in a group of males because they spend most of their time posturing to not look gay.
I just joined a group called Ethical Culture because I wanted to get in on a discussion about WalMart pulling some children's cd due to "profanity." It has launched into a discussion about whether people have a right not to be "offended." I'd would love to see you join in.
