The Baltimore Coalition of Reason (Baltimore CoR) seeks to raise public awareness that people can be good without believing in God. Baltimore CoR brings together humanistic, secular, and nontheistic organizations in the Greater Baltimore region.
We affirm that all have the ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity. Our understanding of what is good relies on human reason and compassion, and not on theistic or supernatural beliefs.
