LaGrange Humanists, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, educational organization that provides a community for humanists in the LaGrange, Georgia area. We address issues of interest to humanists, freethinkers, atheists, agnostics, rationalists, naturalists, secularists, and non-theists. Our major goals include preserving the separation between church and state and promoting individual freedom through educational activities, social events, and advocacy. LaGrange Humanists, Inc., is an official Chapter of the American Humanist Association.
Humanism is a progressive philosophy of life that affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity -- without theism and other supernatural beliefs.
"Humanists recognize that it is only when people feel free to think for themselves, using reason as their guide, that they are best capable of developing values that succeed in satisfying human needs and serving human interests."
- Isaac Asimov
"I am a humanist, which means, in part, that I have tried to behave decently without any expectation of rewards or punishment after I'm dead." - Kurt Vonnegut
"Humanism is the commitment to the use of reason in human affairs, applied in the service of compassion."
- Hans Jürgen Eysenck
"There is no humanist creed, no set of beliefs to which every humanist has to subscribe. Humanism is not a dogma or a sect... As human beings, we can find from our own resources the shared moral values which we need in order to live together, and the means to create meaningful and fulfilling lives for ourselves." - Richard Norman, On Humanism
We are a democratic group, and activities will be determined by the group. Future activities may include discussions, debates, roundtable conversations, scholarship contests, volunteering for charitable projects, and attending lectures and conferences.
While we may encourage or discourage legislation on issues such as science, separation between church and state, and evolution, as a non-profit group, we are not involved in electoral politics. However, like all free humans, we are free to participate in politics at any level as individuals.
