Going to the Other Side–Peterson Among British Atheists

Peterson and Zack are back to have a conversation about the intersection of faiths. Peterson is getting ready to head to Europe, where he’ll be speaking and performing before the British Humanist Association. (You’ll also find him at the Greenbelt Festival.) Unsure of how a room full of non-believers will receive him, he turns to Zack, who obviously is prepared to speak on behalf of all atheists. We get into a conversation about discussing religion across “interfaith” spaces, and effective ways to keep the event inclusive. Plus, Zack gets one step closer to winning that toaster.

    The people in the audience this Friday in London will not necessarily be atheists, but may well be humanists-which isn’t necessarily the same thing at all.
    GALHA -the Gay and Lesbian Humanist Association have been arranging public meetings for over 30 years open to everyone, so there will probably be a fair amount of “believers” there anyway. I’m sure both “believers” and “non-believers” present will be united in wanting to expose the dangers of ex gay therapy. We do work together sometimes-you know!

    It’s right Derek. I was one of the believers that attended the event.
