Secular Day of the Dead - Dia de los Muertos
A Secular Day of the Dead/Día de los Muertos is a celebration of life. Nontheist Hispanics and others view the Secular Day of the Dead as a perfect way to remember the legacy of dead loved ones that does not require prayer, church, or religious dogma. To nontheists, our legacies are our afterlife. The Secular Day of the Dead will include many redesigned and religion-free Hispanic traditions and rituals that celebrate our one and only life, legacies and cultural heritage.
A Progressive Vision for Religious Liberty
Liz Reiner Platt will discuss the progressive vision for religious liberty rights formulated by legal scholars and theologians in a report titled “All Faiths and None: A Guide to Protecting Religious Liberty for Everyone.” The report posits that policymakers have lost sight of the meaning and purpose of the First Amendment’s guarantee of religious freedom, and offers guidance on what must be done to protect free exercise rights for all, not merely a favored few. Its recommendations are organized around a set of guiding principles: religious liberty must be neutral; noncoercive; nondiscriminatory; not absolute; democratic; and pluralistic.
