Home of Secular Ontario
is a non-profit corporation formed in 2006 to promote and defend
the secular and civil nature of Ontario society.
To promote and encourage harmony among the province's diverse
communities of ideologies, and cultures
To promote a communal etiquete for conducting municipal and
provincial affairs so that no individual or group suffer discrimination
To insure that no individual or group suffer discrimination
because of their religion or non-religion when applying for or conducting activities
sanctioned by or funded by the province
To insure that dissemination of scientific knowledge is not
thwarted by its contradiction with faith-based beliefs
To insure that no favour or concession is granted to any particular
religiously based belief or ideology.
Secular Ontario's first initiative is to request that municipalities in Ontario refrain from reciting the "Lord's Prayer" at council meetings. The population of Ontario embraces a variety of religious sects and some do not acknowledge any deity. Municipalities serve all residents and cannot be seen as favouring one particular religion. Therefore, municipalities have to remain secular so that all of its citizens can feel included.
Membership to SO is open to anyone who shares the aims of SO and wants to help us continue our current project or any other future issues. SO welcomes individuals who endorse the view that in a democracy, it is essential that that Religion and State be separate and that public life be kept free of religious rituals and practices that divide people from each other.
