Freethinkers of Colorado Springs
September Monthly Social
~5:00 pm to ~9:00 pm
Come and enjoy good food and great conversation with other Freethinkers!
Bring a dish to share, bring your spouse and/or friend, and bring a bottle of beer or wine or whatever you’d like to drink; coffee and tea are provided by the host(s). Socials usually begin at 6:00 pm and break up around 9:00 pm.
By the way, these sessions are called "Pot Luck" because you never know how GREAT a dish in a given POT will be until you try it. Sometimes you get lucky. If you ARE a Great ( or even an aspiring) cook, tape your name to your pot, or place a card near it, so people can congratulate you, and beg you for the recipe (as if you really used one). If you are a recipe-user, consider bringing a copy and allow people to copy (or photograph) it. If your food has a special character ( vegan, paleo, gluten free , etc.).
Most Freethinkers are religiously very sophisticated, and very doubtful. But they mostly respect the power and usefulness of religion, and the social groups they form. And we have a healthy fear of the terrible damage religion can inflict.
But the main topic here will be the food. Great deserts, imaginative salads, and some plan old simple ones. Casserole dishes are appreciated with their rich blends of flavor and textures. Consider putting the dressing on the side for the purists who really LIKE vegetables.
Expect to join in lots of discussions about science; the power of well designed vaccines; the tragedy of religious oppression, the civil right of all people to choose freedom FROM religion, gender equity, and individual civil rights,human rights, and respect.
Remember to mark your calendar; Freethinkers of Colorado Springs socials occur regularly on the second Saturday of the month.
