Godless and broke: making secular groups less middle class - Alex Gabriel
Alex was homeless in the first year of his life and grew up with a single mum on benefits. Now he's a full time atheist who thinks we need to talk more about class.
Doubt and skepticism don't cost money, but movement built around them often do. Secularists are broadening their image, but their cause remains seen, not totally unfairly, as middle class. We have to take action to reach hard up atheists and skeptics, or risk being a community for the well off. In this talk, Alex discusses how.
Alex Gabriel is the author of Godlessness in Theory, a blog on religion and how to leave it, popular rhetoric and political dissent, secular, nerd and LGBT culture, sexuality and gender or whatever comes to mind. His writing appears at AlterNet, the Rationalist Association and elsewhere. Follow his work, or find him on Twitter @AlexGabriel.
