I guess the UU church in Cleveland is fairly religious but there are many atheist/freethinker members. We have a HAFA (Humanists, Atheists, Freethinkers, and Agnostics) group that meets regularly for different discussions, my wife and I being the youngest attendees by a few years. The ministers are a husband wife team, the husband being a practicing Buddhist, the wife considering herself a Christian. For the past year the church had an intern minister from up your way who considered himself a Nontheist, but my wife and I only knew him a few months and his service here is now over. I think the Sunday morning worship is balanced though, they may often quote wisdom from different religious traditions (rarely scripture from the Bible), but also just as often have readings from scientists, philosophers, and poets. Even with some religious readings, supernatural mythology is not taken literally by UUs, everything is reinterpreted with reason, and would probably be considered heretical by traditionalists. I appreciate that.

Well I am working with the Center for Inquiry to try to encourage freethought groups across Western Canada. I know of one other person in Sask. that may help, and there's supposedly a professor at the UofS who is supportive. If you email me at thzatheist@gmail.com I can get you in touch with the CFI director of Canada who has a few contacts in that area and lots of experience getting groups going.

Hey, I saw you were from Saskatchewan, so far I haven't seen too many Western Canadians on here. Are there any freethought groups in Sask? We have some new ones here and hopefully in the future some can get going out your way too.

This is my new "tongue-in-cheek" photo.

Do you think it's too strong? ;-)

Hi there! I was raised by fundamentalist baptists and have always lived in places saturated in religion. I feel your pain. Don't worry about the kids being baptized. It's just water! :)

"Dualism, whether Pythagorean, Platonic, or Christian, does a disservice to those who subscribe to it. By aiming for paradise, we lose sight of earth. Hope of a beyond and aspiration to an afterlife engender a sense of futility in the present. If the prospect of getting taken up to paradise generates joy, it is the mindless joy of a baby picked up from his crib." - Michel Onfray from In the Defense of Atheism

Well, as social networking goes, Atheist Nexus seems like a rather friendly place to start. :)
