Note: This event is related to the Human Tree of Knowledge event in West Chester, PA, on Dec. 1, 2012.
FS invites you to gather with us for a Tree of Knowledge decorating holiday event scheduled to take place on Sunday, December 2, 2012 at the Ethical Humanist Society of Philadelphia (EHSP), located at 1906 South Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The event will begin with an 11:00 AM Sunday platform speech entitled, “The Wall for All: Protecting the Integrity of Both State and Religion,” by Hugh Taft-Morales. Taft-Morales is the leader of EHSP. He notes that “Everyone should support a high wall of separation between government and religion. As Thomas Jefferson said, this wall is ‘essential in a free society.’ It protects the rights of citizens of religious and nontheist perspectives. As zealots try to deconstruct this wall brick by brick, we must speak out more forcefully against those who distort its real purpose: To maintain the secular nature of the state so it better serves believers and nonbelievers alike.”
Please attend the Taft-Morales presentation to learn more about what you can do to uphold the Jeffersonian Wall of Separation between religion and government.
After the presentation, a 10’ tall Tree of Knowledge will be decorated and placed on display in the foyer of the Ethical Society Building. Refreshments will be served.
PLEASE RSVP via our Facebook or Meetup Pages!
