  • PFC Virtual Social Night (Tuesday, March 02, 2021)
    Come gather around a virtual table with some other freethinkers to discuss anything at all. Social nights do not typically have a topic of discussion but instead provide a space to gather and talk openly. We will be meeting on-line every 1st Tuesday of the month until the Stay-at-Home order is rescinded for Allegheny County.
  • Discussion Group 4: Women's Group (Thursday, March 04, 2021)
    March 4 Topic: Generational Experience The experience of being a woman has changed over time, and so have the unique challenges we face. Let's take advantage of our inter-generational group to learn from each other by comparing and contrasting some of these experiences. What has changed? What issues have remained the same? PFC's Discussion Groups are moderated forums with pre-selected topics. Anyone who wishes to participate in these discussions is welcome to do so. This group is meant to be a space for women within PFC to meet and discuss whatever topics are of most interest. Topics will be posted in advance of the meeting, but please feel free to bring along topic or activity suggestions for future!
  • Virtual Trivia Night! (Monday, March 08, 2021)
    PFC normally fields a bar trivia team that competes every Monday night, barring conflicting events (like Steelers games, etc) Under the current circumstances, these competitions are not able to be held. So in order to keep our trivial brains properly functioning in the pursuit of trivia, we are holding informal gatherings to keep our communal trivial skills finely tuned.
  • Katherine Stewart: The Power Worshippers (Wednesday, March 10, 2021)
      The Power Worshippers: Inside the Dangerous Rise of Religious Nationalism For too long the religious right has masqueraded as a social movement preoccupied with cultural issues such as abortion and same-sex marriage. But in her deeply reported investigation, Katherine Stewart shows that this is a political movement, and its ultimate goal is power. It does not seek to add another voice to America’s pluralistic democracy but to replace our foundational democratic principles and institutions with a state grounded on a particular version of Christianity, answering to what some adherents call a “biblical worldview.” The movement has already succeeded in degrading our politics and dividing the nation with religious animus. This isn’t a “culture war.” It is a political war over the future of democracy. Stewart pulls back the curtain on the movement's inner workings and leading personalities, exposing the movement's infrastructure and its leading personalities. In spite of the consequences of the 2020 election, the movement will remain a formidable force in our politics. By shedding light on the movement's logic and tactics, Stewart helps us understand the strategies we will need to mount an effective response. Closed captioning will be available for this event through Google Meet. To enable captions in Google Meet, click on the three dots menu in the lower right corner and choose “Turn on captions” next to the CC symbol.
  • Discussion Group 2: East (Thursday, March 11, 2021)
    Discussion Groups are moderated forums with pre-selected topics. Anyone who wishes to participate in the civil discussions is welcome to do so. The groups nominally represent different geographical locations and will morph back into geographically located in-person discussions when we can do so, for now we meet using zoom. They are currently held every Thursday. The topic for each discussion is announced in advance, sometimes with recommended reading.
  • Discussion Group 3: South (Thursday, March 18, 2021)
    PFC Monthly discussion groups are open to all - if the topic interests you, you'll be welcome! Discussion is moderated but informal - speak up as much or little as you wish.

  • Virtual Freethinkers in the Pub (Friday, March 19, 2021)
    Even though we can't host an in-person, face-to-face event, we can host a virtual event. So grab a Corona or three (or other beverage of choice) and maybe some munchies or snacks (or even some dinner if you're so inclined) and pull up a chair and join the (virtual) party. Register/RSVP here and a link will be provided on Friday afternoon via email for the virtual event. (You may have to download the Google Meet app or Zoom to participate.) Freethinkers in the Pub is an informal social event providing an opportunity for freethinkers, skeptics, atheists, and agnostics to get together for wide-ranging conversation and conviviality in a lighthearted atmosphere. So join us every 3rd Friday of the month for a pleasant evening of fun with like-minded people.
