What we stand for is the elimination of certain practices stemming from widespread acceptance of false premises. Therefore, it is easier and clearer to state our purpose in terms of what we are against.
The false premises (which we call “The Most Insidious Lies”) are:
Each of these lies depends on distorions and misconceptions about what happens after death. So, convincing the public that the human personality does, indeed, survive the demise of the physical body is a key part of our efforts.
The practices we work to eliminate (our “Defining Issues”) include:
All of which violate our “Core Principles” of Compassion, Honesty, Tolerance, Forgiveness, and Joy.Who We Are
Spirits at Play is neither a religion nor a political party, just a group of people knit together by their shared understanding of the world and what might be done to improve it. We employ a combination of libertarian and spiritual approaches that sets us apart from other organizations.
We encourage open, accepting attitudes; we do not promote any particular lifestyle.
Any more elaborate organizational structure awaits evidence that our goals are shared by large numbers of people who care enough to join with us. For now, membership is free to all who sign-up for e-mail updates. [send to firstname.lastname@example.org]
