Join the University of Toronto Secular Alliance (UTSA)
Today is "Clubs Day." It's the day when all the clubs set up booths around Hart House Circle and the students come to sign up for various activities. That's Cameron Proctor, the Vice President of the University of Toronto Secular Alliance [Facebook] at his booth. I saw his list—there were about 50 people signed up. I had to clear away a huge crowd in order to get the picture.
I didn't count the number of religious clubs but there must have been at least a dozen. Each one had five or six people soliciting new members and each one had more inquisitive students at the tables than UTSA. I don't get it. I figure that half the students are nonblievers but I guess they aren't interested in a club for nonbelievers.
UTSA has a number of programs planned for this Fall and the members meet every second Thursday starting Sept. 28. Maybe I'll see you there?
