About

Lake Superior Freethinkers is a friendship group in support of:
»    Morality without Superstition
»    Church & State Separation
»    Freedom from Religions
»    and Rational Thought

It was formed in 1997 by Dr. Bill van Druten and others who hoped to prevent the sale of Duluth’s last hospital facility to the Roman Catholic Church, limiting choice for all women in the area. When this merger was blocked, the group moved on to achieve the removal of a Ten Commandments monument from City Hall to a place of honor that was not on government property. Once that was achieved, the group went on to protest of a gay ban in the Boy Scouts, block Evangelical recruiters from using public school facilities, and continues as a watchdog to protect and defend the separation of church and state.
