STATEMENT ON HUMANISM
We are all equally Human, sharing common needs met in collaboration, ensuring freedom and security;
We respect our differences and the need to have a balanced approach to these when working and living together;
We believe in the self-esteem and respect of the individual, empowered to be free from prejudice and privilege;
We believe that humour and reason can erode ignorance and habitual self-defeating behaviour;
We believe that with sensible thinking we can live ethically in pursuit of happiness;
We believe that a balance of challenge and support is the most practicable and rewarding means to learning and living as Humanists.
Humanism is the view that we can make sense of the world using reason, experience and shared human values and that we can live good lives without religious or superstitious beliefs.
