Did you know that 24 percent of our nation’s adult population – and 36 percent of college-aged individuals – identify as secular or unaffiliated with a religion? Six percent of Secular Americans openly identify as Atheist or Agnostic. Forty eight percent of LGBTQ+ individuals identify as secular or unaffiliated. [Pew Research Center]
Secularism is the fastest growing faith perspective demographic in our nation, yet it is also the most hated and misunderstood minority. As the strength and diversity of our secular community grows, so does the need for resources and support.
A church is a perspective-specific community for people of faith; BE. Orlando is a perspective-specific community for people of non-faith, as well as for people of faith who believe that goodness, kindness, and compassion are ubiquitous human potentials. Like any fellowship, we share common goals, values, and interests.
We invite you to explore this site, follow our blog, and if you are in the Central Florida area seeking a positive community of service-minded Humanists – please join our Meetup and BE part of our events.🙂
