Good Tidings and Great Joy

Season’s Greetings! Sarah Palin started another round in her supposed war over Christmas by coming to Columbus for a signing of her latest book Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas. Sandwiched between the pagan wreath on the front of Palin’s book and the recipes like peanut butter balls and Rice Krispies Treats in the back, Palin added unfortunate sections of her book attacking atheists and other people who value secular society. Rather than returning Palin’s unfair, hateful remarks, this message brings the good tidings and great joy of Humanism and secularism.

Celebrating Women in Humanism

People who have not studied history may be surprised to learn that religions like Christianity have been used as an excuse for denying women power. As a result, many feminists had to challenge common religious beliefs in order to encourage more equality, and nonbelievers in Columbus, Ohio have a history of supporting women’s rights.
