Name:Status: MemberDescription: In the spirit of Callahan's Saloon, this space is open to all who want to pull a comfy chair up to the bar, order whatever Beverage Of Your Choice (BOYC) suits your fancy, and talk. Your regular bartender is Fedor's Evil Twin Brother, ETB for short. You may consider him a non-player character -- in role-playing game parlance -- so have him do (tastefully!) those things you want him to do. Serving you the beverage of your choice is a good start. So long as you conform to the general rules of etiquette we all must comply with on Beliefnet, no topic or expression is out of line. Let's just see what develops, shall we?
Name:Status: MemberDescription: It happens everyday....going about your business you run up against ethical questions and have to decide what's right and what's wrong. How much you can push the limits before your guilt gets the better of you? Should you report someone else's wrongdoings or remain quiet? What should you do with a $50 bill you find on the sidewalk? If someone forgets to charge you, must you remind them? How much are you obligated to tell friends and relatives? Here's the place to post your ethical dilemmas, weigh in on the predicaments of others and read opinions from the group.
Name:Status: MemberDescription: What this group should be: This group should give those secular individuals a place to congregate and attempt to create a beliefnet community with like-minded members. The goal should include maintaining a positive face for those who believe that secularism is important to the overall evolution and success of the human race as a whole and connected existence.
What this group should not be: A negative and divisive attack on religion and faith as a whole. While secularism is based in atheistic concepts, it is important to be respectful and understanding of the realities that perpetrate theism in this world, while still pointing out the negative aspects of an ancient and misguided belief system.
