Freedom of Expression. Gill Cleverly 2nd April 2014

Her wide-ranging, clearly expressed paper covers all the main issues from the Universal Declaration on Human Rights to hate speech, respect for religion, the internet, pornography and press freedom. Expecting you will have read it Gill will speak for no more than 30 minutes highlighting what she considers the most important points. After a short break those who wish will then respond with their thoughts before we have a more general back and forth discussion. Derek Hudson will be our chairperson.

This is a subject that affects us all from the trust we may have for our police and politicians to what our children are exposed to on iphone.Not surprisingly many members have indicated an interest in attending so we are close to our magic maximum of 16 already.

If you have booked by email as the email you receive shows, you definitely have a place. Life, however is unpredictable, so if, for some reason, you will not be able to make it, please let me know so I can offer your place to others as soon as possible.

Those who have currently booked a place have received an email asking them to tell me if any of them will not be able to come.

If you are not on this magic list and would like to come, please email to go on the “drop-out” list for places and I will let you know asap.

Seeing how things are panning out you might also use the email to book a place for our next meeting which is on Wednesday 18th June. “What makes something a fact? The construction of scientific meaning from a theological perspective.”  Our speaker is The Revd Joanna Penberthy. Jo is Vicar of Cucklington and currently working on her Ph.D. in Theology
