Tuesday, April 23 only 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Marx, Nietzsche, and Freud are among the most influential of modern atheists, earning them the title “masters of suspicion”.They challenge people of faith to question the motives behind beliefs, to investigate the function beliefs play, and to ask what work beliefs do for the individuals and communities that adopt them. This two-hour workshop will explore what Marx, Nietzsche, and Freud were right about, and how religion can become healthier, more authentic, and more honest.

Carl Gregg is minister of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Frederick. He has earned a B.A., M.Div., and D.Min.
