On January 30, 2017 the federal government tabled a response to an electronic Parliamentary petition (E-382) calling for the repeal of Canada’s blasphemous libel law (Criminal Code Section 296).
“Should women abandon religion?” Four female panelists face-off in a wild, whip-smart public debate about religion and misogyny. With opinions flying from a progressive Muslim lawyer, an Orthodox Jewish spiritual leader, an excommunicated nun and a lesbian atheist pundit, Unholy delivers a hilarious, no-holds-barred look at contemporary women in organized religion.
Gretta Vosper writes:
Join me at Unholy on Friday, February 2nd. I’ll be up on stage, not in the gripping conversation that is the responsibility of four awesome actors, but the one that will take place afterward, the one that will point to where we can go from here, as women, as citizens, as people who are tired of stories that tell us we aren’t good enough.
$20 rush tickets are available Tuesday-Thursday
$15 PWYC tickets are available for Sunday matinees.

Join us for CFI Calgary’s 6th year of participation in the Calgary Pride Parade on Sunday, September 4, 2016.
At CFI Calgary we support Pride because we stand for secular values and freedom of inquiry, and oppose religious based bigotry. This is a Humanist opportunity for people to join us in support of positive social change.
We have CFI Calgary Pride T-shirts that will be available for $10. The T-shirt design is the same from previous years, so you can wear your old one.
The Parade starts at Center Street and 8th Ave S (aka, Stephen Ave), and proceeds West towards Shaw Millennium Park. This family friendly parade sees upwards of 60,000 spectators as over 125 entries from community groups, corporations, politicians, churches and public services roll through the heart of downtown, and celebrates the tremendous diversity of Calgary’s community.
The parade starts at 12 noon and we will need to be in place at 11:30. More exact details as to where we will meet will be released closer to the event.
Pride Calgary is all about, well, Pride! So please, have fun! Make some noise and promote equal attitudes and treatment of all citizens of Canada!
CFI-Canada has been a long-time supporter of LGBT rights, and a participant in pride parades across the nation. In Ottawa, CFI has walked in the Capital Pride parade since 2009. Our message, “Stop faith-based bigotry,” is a reminder that most of the barriers held up against LGBT equality are religiously motivated.
CFI Ottawa marched on August 21 in the Ottawa Pride March. Despite the rain we were there to support the GLBT community against Faith Based Bigotry. We had 600 “Stop Faith Based Bigotry” stickers and we handed out every single one.
Our message against the few preaching hate on the sidelines, was very much appreciated by marchers and bystanders. This writer was personally thanked by many from the sidelines for all we do and those words of support were reward enough.
CFI Canada has been a long-time supporter of LGBT rights, and a participant in pride parades across the nation. This year, CFI Montreal marched in the Montréal Pride/Fierté Montréal parade. Our message, “CONTRE L’HOMOPHOBIE RELIGIEUSE” (STOP FAITH-BASED BIGOTRY), is a reminder that most of the barriers held up against LGBT equality are religiously motivated.
