The OGOD vs Schools court case is due to be heard at the Johannesburg (South Gauteng) High Court next week 15 – 17 May 2017. We encourage all secularists and supporters in the area to join us at 9am (for 10h00) at the court in Pritchard Street, Johannesburg. Hans plans to have OGOD T-shirts available on Monday morning.

“When religion and politics travel in the same cart, the riders believe nothing can stand in their way. Their movements become headlong – faster and faster and faster. They put aside all thoughts of obstacles and forget the precipice does not show itself to the man in a blind rush until it’s too late.”

With honour killings going across all forms of religions, nationalities and cultures, we cannot assign this horrible act to a certain group of people. But what seems to be the trend, is that it usually is the male that disagrees with the female’s actions or believes which then makes the female the victim.read more
