    Leo spoke at our dinner last night. It was one of the best presentations we have ever had. He actually is inspiring…largely for the good humour in the face of terror, cruelty and ignorance. Come and see him on Saturday at the Trades Hall. 2pm.

    When stupidity, fear and ignorance run a society, irrational ideas gain control. In Nigeria children accused of being witches are being tortured and put to death by fundamentalist Christians. Thankfully European society stopped burning witches in the late 18th century but sadly Africa today sees the result of crackpot irrational ideas when they are left unchecked. Why is it that an atheist that is bringing this horror to light and why are the mainstream churches silent on this matter?
