10th May monthly talks 8.00pm

Unitarian Church 15 Francis Street East Sydney
Headline talk; Steve Marton
"A funny thing happened on the way to the mosque" - 
SynopsisThis talk centres around Mohammed. It illustrates how he justified himself to his followers and then discusses the manipulation, promises and threats that he made to have his followers do his bidding.
Second talk; Aleks Zablotskii
"Islam and Totalitarianism"  -
SynopsisThe talk explores the totalitarian tendencies that underlie some of the fundamental principles of Islam, and draws historical comparisons to other modern totalitarian regimes as a basis for valuing their practical application on society. It will also be argued that while racism, ethnocentrism and xenophobia are indeed a facet of the secular world that must be confronted at every instance, “Islamophobia” is an entirely irrational notion that permeates our discourse.

Those who wish to have dinner together before the talks, we will meet at 6.30 at MD Thai on the corner of College Street and Oxford streets Darlinghurst.
