    I've never heard of them, but that doesn't mean much since free thought groups are usually locally supported and run, so there are thousands.

    Just be wary of groups that look for money up front. The best atheist, atheist-friendly and free thought groups are non-profits.

    Yeah, I'm not giving them any money to chat with people and listen to a speaker. They've got an optional breakfast brunch followed by the speaker. I'd show up for the speaker (if an interesting topic) and hang out afterward if there are any interesting thoughts/people.

    Go for it. The good thing about there being so many groups is you can often try a bunch to see if you really enjoy any of them more than others.

    "Vatican defrocks top US cardinal McCarrick over sexual abuse allegations"
    https://www.cnn.com/2019/02/16/us/th...ntl/index.html

    I'm horrified with how long the Catholic church has protected various members of the clergy... and how long abuse cases have festered. Acting on pedophilia is always wrong.

    If masturbation is a sin, or dirty... and holy men are supposed to be celibate.... lots of sexually repressed folks have resorted to criminally deviant behavior.

    I don't think it's at all hyperbolic to say, objectively, that the Roman Catholic Church is a criminal cabal of sexual predators and pederasts. What's terrifying is if it were any other organization — even another religious organization — I think they would have been bankrupted into oblivion by now.

    RICO (Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) and other charges would pour forth were it another enterprise and/or we took the protection of children seriously. Last week, ho hum, recognition that priests have sexually abused nuns for pretty much a thousand years.
