Witch Hunting: In the 21st Century?

Though in our society witch hunting is largely abandoned it remains a problem in Africa and parts of Asia. Recently the British Humanist Association (BHA) and Witchcraft and Human Rights Information Network (WHRIN) have been sued by the wealthy evangelical preacher and ‘witch hunter’ Helen Ukpabio, for ‘half a billion pounds’ because of their criticism of her teachings and methods. Leo Igwe, founder of the Nigerian Humanist Society is a tireless campaigner against witch hunting practices on the African continent. SOCH, Nepal Humanist Society, is also working to eliminate witch hunting practices in their country.

We meet from 7.30 pm until 9.30 pm
All interested people are welcome, Society members and members of the public – bring a friend.
Venue: Tararua Tramping Club, 4 Moncrieff St, off Elizabeth St, off Kent Tce, Wellington

The Challenge of Modern Humanism


Human beings must accept responsibility for themselves, each other and our planet
There is no evidence of any supernatural power to help, reward or punish us
We must gain greater understanding of our world and our fellow human beings. Our resources for this are our
   - human experience
   - modern knowledge
   - capacities for reason, compassion and co-operation
Humanism is the use of human reason in the service of compassion
God impregnated a virgin so that he could be born so that he could die so that he could appease himself.
