A day or two ago, I donated to the atheist bus campaign. They have now nearly raised £100k, which is quite impressive.

To follow up, I have joined the BHA. I have asked them about starting a Humanist group in Rugby - as if I have surplus free time. I realise religion (or a lack thereof) can be a controversial issue, but I have considered and respect the BHA's position on these matters.

I have recently been summoned for jury service. I was interested to learn that I can choose to "affirm" rather than swear an oath on a holy book of my choice. I think this will be much more meaningful for me.
