The Latest Separationist: Download the April 2013 issue of the newsletter of the SHL. Our newsletter is produced each month from September until May and is always available here in PDF format.
Donate to the Charity of the Quarter: We pool the donations from our members and give the total to a local charitable organization. For March-April 2013, the SHL is collecting donations for Palmetto House Shelter. Please help us make a generous donation to this deserving charity.
It was a tremendous success. Thanks to everyone involved, especially Roger Prevost, without whose expertise we would never have been able to do such a professional job of building the patio. (Click on the image above to see the results.)
Humanism and the Boston Bombings: We heard from this month's guest speaker, James Croft, about the need for humanists to be more actively involved in charity and politics. We also learned from him that, even though some of the victims of the bombing at the Boston Marathon were humanists, the humanist community was excluded from the official ceremonial response. For both of these reasons, we urge you to use the button below to donate money through SHL which will be given to offer aid and support to those hurt by the bombing in the name of Charleston's secular humanist community:
The Videos are Back!: The SHL Video Library includes recordings of our debates, some of the guests at our meetings, and Herb Silverman's appearance in the 1990 Gubernatorial Debates on SCETV. However, because of a change in policy at YouTube, they were unavailable for a while. Now, thanks mostly to Todd Frech who reposted them in the new format, they are available again. So, finally, you can see Herb wearing a tuxedo. Thanks, Todd!
