Secular Bible Study Description:
Atheist/Agnostic Students at PSU invite you to join us for a weekly interfaith/nonfaith secular bible study for the duration of spring term. Each week we will be discussing a different section of the bible in order to promote critical thinking, cultural understanding, open dialogue between faith groups, and bible literacy. Discussion groups will meet at 4pm each week on either a Tuesday or a Wednesday. Please check the Atheist/Agnostic Student Blog (at http://psuatheistagnostic.wordpress.com/) or request to be added to our listserv (by e-mailing athag@pdx.edu) for updates about meeting locations, times, and reading assignments.

Secular Bible Study – Tuesday, April 22nd

The Secular Bible Study has had some wonderful discussions over the past three weeks, so we hope you all will join us again this week. Please read John, chapters 5, 6, and 7 for Tuesday. Because we didn’t quite finish chapter 5 last week, we will be looking briefly at the last part of it before moving on to 6 and 7.

Secular Bible Study – Tuesday, April 15th

Hello All,
I hope you will join us this week for our continued study of the book of John. Since the group is moving more slowly than previously predicted, we have decided to limit the reading for each week. Last time we looked at John, chapter 3. Please read John, chapters 4 and 5 for Tuesday. We hope to see you there.

Rep. Monique Davis (D-Illinois) Attacks Atheist Activist Rob Sherman.

We are often asked why there needs to be a student group to advocate for atheists and agnostics. If you find yourself asking this question, we need only direct you to occasions such as this one:

The Atheist-Agnostic Student Group Goals

Atheist-Agnostic Students is a student group at Portland State University. This group has four goals:

1. Break down the stereotypes surrounding atheists, agnostics, secular humanists and other non-religious peoples, focusing on their positive content instead.
2. Raise awareness and advocate for non-religious students at PSU.
3. Promote critical thinking and questioning on campus.
4. Build a support structure and community for non-religious students.

This group is not an anti-religious, an anti-semitic or a hate group of any kind. It is not the intent of this group to ‘destroy peoples’ faiths’ or convert anyone, but we are not afraid to ask challenging and critical questions about beliefs and values.

People of all faiths, beliefs and backgrounds are welcome and encouraged to attend our events.
