Red Bank Humanists to host renowned author and scholar Susan Jacoby on Sunday, January 11, 2015

 

Red Bank, December 22, 2014 - The Red Bank Humanists (RBH) are pleased to welcome Pulitzer Prize Nominee and best-selling author, Susan Jacoby, who will be giving a talk entitled “The Secular Conscience”. The event is open to the public and admission is free.

 

Ms. Jacoby’s presentation will focus on the false accusation that there can be no morality without religion and why that perception needs to be changed if we are ever to have a politically effective secular movement in the United States.

 

Some of the topics Ms. Jacoby will discuss include:

- How can we combat the misconception that there can be no morality without religion?

- Historically, why do atheists face more hostility from Americans than Europeans?

- How can individuals who have non-theist/atheist beliefs come out of the closet and effectively communicate their beliefs, and why is this essential in order to have a politically effective secular movement?

 

Ms. Jacoby is an independent scholar whose work focuses on American intellectual history.  Her recent books include Freethinkers: A History of American Secularism; the New York Times Best Seller The Age of American Unreason; and Never Say Die: The Myth and Marketing of the New Old Age.  Her book, Wild Justice: The Evolution of Revenge, was a Pulitzer Prize finalist in 1984.  www.susanjacoby.com
