We have an insightful conversation with Dr. Reverend David Breeden, senior minister at the First Unitarian Society of Minneapolis. We talk about the history of the modern Humanist movement and how the first Manifesto was a response against the growing fascism in Europe. Breeden explains what congregational humanism is about and how Mary Midgley’s idea that all solutions are incomplete fits with Humanism. David also gives his thoughts about the revision of the bylaws of the Unitarian Universalist Association.
Is there a conflict between Humanism and Intersectionality? Michael Werner believes there is and he is trying to save the UUA from it.
In this episode Douglas talks to Rev. Dr. TK Barger of the First Unitarian Church of Toledo about the historic ties between the UUs and Humanism. We also discuss how Unitarians have religious rituals that are not based in the supernatural and we talk about some of the differences between religious and secular humanism.
