“Freethinkers, Faitheists, and Atheists: Mapping Non-Believers”
According to a 2012 Pew survey about religious affiliation, the fastest growing group in the U.S. is the one claiming no religion at all. As a result, a wide spectrum of organizations – from humanist to skeptic to atheist – are scrambling to attract some of these 33 million people. How do we make sense of the diversity of alternatives to traditional religion? What does Ethical Humanism offer that is unique and important? How can we help give direction to the many people now swimming in humanist seas?
Hugh Taft-Morales joined the Baltimore Ethical Society as its professional leader in 2010, the same year he was certified by the American Ethical Union as an Ethical Culture Leader. He also serves as Leader of the Ethical Humanist Society of Philadelphia. His presence in Ethical Culture has been termed “invigorating.” Taft-Morales lives in Takoma Park, Maryland, with his wife Maureen, a Latin American Analyst with the Congressional Research Service, with whom he has three beloved children, Sean, Maya, and Justin. Singing and playing guitar, practicing yoga, and watching “way too much sports” are among his enjoyments.
