Human decency is not derived from religion. It precedes it. Christopher Hitchens
The Kansas City Metropolitan Area is home to a variety of robust organizations and individual bloggers dedicated to free thought. Additionally, groups exist in many cities outside of the metropolitan area and in the high schools, colleges and universities in the region. National groups further enhance free thought opportunities. If you are a secular humanist, atheist, agnostic, skeptic or other freethinker or just want to learn more, most of the groups will welcome you to share in their activities.
