Author Fernando Alcántar at Ludington Library, on September 26, 2016

The Freethought Society (FS) is pleased to host presenter and author Fernando Alcántar on Monday, September 26, 2016. His free and open-to-the-public presentation is entitled “To the Cross and Back” and is based upon his book.

The program starts at 7:00 PM, in the community room at the Ludington Library located at 5 South Bryn Mawr Avenue, Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. A SEPTA stop is located across the street from the library.

In his presentation, Alcántar will take the audience on a journey of discovery, analyzing the cultural barriers and psychological consequences of organized religion which lead to bigotry, prejudice, and harm. Through his personal story ascending up the ranks of Christian leadership in North America, Alcántar will flesh out the systematic institutionalization of a religious system that promotes the withering of critical thinking, homogenization of cultural values, and the promotion of attacks on minority communities, such as the LGBT and ethnic populations.

Alcántar is a former denominational state leader for the Foursquare Church in Mexico, the United Methodist Church in the United States, and missionary leader for Azusa Pacific University, the second largest evangelical college in the nation.
