“Deed Before Creed” and Ethical Non-Theism
What do all these words mean? If you are a member of an Ethical Society they should mean a lot. Hugh Taft-Morales explores the prioritizing of action over metaphysics that makes Ethical Humanism a lived philosophy. Non-theism, which is basically “not taking a position about the existence or non-existence of god,” is a part of this pragmatic commitment to focus more on behavior than beliefs.
Hugh Taft-Morales joined the Baltimore Ethical Society as its professional leader in 2010, the same year he was certified by the American Ethical Union as an Ethical Culture Leader. He also serves as Leader of the Ethical Humanist Society of Philadelphia. His presence in Ethical Culture has been termed “invigorating.” Taft-Morales lives in Takoma Park, Maryland, with his wife Maureen, a Latin American Analyst with the Congressional Research Service, with whom he has three beloved children, Sean, Maya, and Justin.
