The Kansas University Society of Open-Minded Atheists and Agnostics group will present an interfaith panel on morality and feature visits from a comedian, a singer and an ex-member of Topeka’s Westboro Baptist Church later this month.
The events are part of its annual Reasonfest conference, which will take place this year at 9 a.m. on April 20 and 21 in Alderson Auditorium at the Kansas Union.
The theme of the conference’s third year will be “Modern Morality: Making Ethical Decisions in a Secular Society,” and on Saturday night it will feature a panel with atheist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish and Muslim representatives who will discuss how they approach morality and answer questions. After the panel there will be performances by comedian Keith Lowell Jensen and Australian singer-songwriter Shelley Segal.
Featured on Sunday will be a “Moral Combat” debate between atheist and Catholic speakers, and a talk by Nate Phelps, a former Westboro Baptist Church member.
