Dan Barker: Good Without God

Join Kettering Secular Skeptics in welcoming Dan Barker, co-president of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, to Kettering University for a talk on being moral without religion. Lunch provided!

"Former minister Dan Barker explains that we don’t need religion to be moral. Religion often gets in the way of morality. In place of biblical commands, Barker offers “Mere Morality,” a humanistic ethical system based on minimizing real harm in the real world."
