We meet from 9:30 AM through 11:30 AM at the North Panera Bread

at 7344 N. Academy Blvd, Colorado Springs, CO on the

1st and 2nd Sundays of each month.

This is a social event without an established discussion topic, just like-minded, non-religious people getting together to both strengthen friendships and make new friends. Many of us probably miss the sense of community that came from weekly gatherings, and this is a great way to create community in a non-religious environment.

Funny elections? by Groff Schroeder: December 2016

Funny elections?

By Groff Schroeder

 

Most Americans agree that free and fair elections are a crucial foundation of our democratic republic, its Constitution, its People, and our freedoms. Yet few would disagree with this statement from the recent election campaign, “There is something funny about the elections, folks.”

Freedom vs. Tyranny by Groff Schroeder: November 2016

Freedom vs. Tyranny


By Groff Schroeder

Freedom is the absence of illegitimate control by government. In contrast, tyranny is forced compliance with arbitrary, brutal, cruel, oppressive, and unlawful government. Freedom provides the ability to control and advance one's own destiny and to live, speak, and write as you wish without fear, interference, or coercion. Free societies provide citizens government protection from environmental degradation, enforced religion, and personal or financial exploitation through the the Rule of Law. Tyranny provides constant, invasive, and personally threatening surveillance designed to escalate societal compliance rooted in constant fear of imminent government-directed arrest, coercion, torture, and murder. Tyranny is law unto itself, exploiting the environment, religion, and citizens directly.

Unpatriotic? by Groff Schroeder: October 2016

Unpatriotic?

By Groff Schroeder

Great controversy has recently enveloped athletes who kneel in protest during America's national anthem, a song whose third verse apparently celebrates the execution of American slaves who sought freedom by escaping their owners and serving the British in the War of 1812. While regular rituals of American life honor patriotic symbols such as the American flag, American culture rarely provides similar recognition or respect to the founding documents and principles of the United States, their history, or the nation they establish - let alone the rights and freedoms they guarantee. While many Americans know the history of the American flag and national anthem, fewer appear to know the history of the US Constitution.
