Good news today includes that of the launch of the The National Federation of Atheist, Humanist and Secular Student Societies. The AHS, as it is conveniently known for short, is affiliated to both the British Humanist Association and the National Secular Society
On its web site, the organization defines its role as follows:
|The AHS is an umbrella organisation which represents atheist, Humanist and secular student societies in the United Kingdom. We provide support and resources for established and newly-forming societies as well as a national voice.|
In my opinion, the formation of such a national organization can only be seen as a good thing. For a cogent set of reasons why this is so, you could do no better than read A.C. Grayling’s article in the Comment is Free section of today’s Guardian.
I certainly wish the AHS well and will be following its progress with interest.
