These situations below are only two real-life examples where Secular Humanists have experienced discrimination in educational settings or work environments.
A person is dismissed from a job with the excuse that “she doesn’t fit in with the company culture.” The company is run by Christians. They have obviously checked her online profile and discovered that she is a Secular Humanist. As a member of SOFREE, she is able to talk to other Secular Humanists, cope with the stress, get recommendation letters and move on.
A university professor is denied tenure and dismissed because the university discovers he is a Secular Humanist. He successfully sues for wrongful dismissal and shares his experience with other Secular Humanists through SOFREE. Other SOFREE members gain from his experience.
