CFI Discussion Group: 7PM TONIGHT at Tan Lac Vien

Where: Tan Lac Vien (2114 Murray Ave (Squirrel Hill), Pittsburgh, PA 15217)


RSVP at:

Center for Inquiry – Pittsburgh

Hi Everyone,

This month, we are going to have a two-fold discussion. First and foremost, we need to discuss how best to accommodate our increased attendance and make for more manageable discussions. After that, our actual discussion topic is to look at the question of cultural sensitivity. Most liberal leaning people have no trouble siding with the Sioux tribes in their dispute with the oil pipeline company in the Dakotas. But what about the native Hawaiian peoples and their objection to building a massive (30-meter) telescope observatory on Maunakea? How much respect and/or sensitivity do we need to have for indigenous cultures and their beliefs/superstitions? Is it cultural insensitivity to ignore cultural superstitions when they interfere with the advancement of a greater good for the overall cultural community? Where do we draw the line – if at all?

*CFI-Pittsburgh strives to be an ADA compliant organization.  Please email to request accommodations.
