“In today’s Scotland, there are fewer formal rituals. But our souls still need them. Today, we need a safe space for our rites, our ceremonies. Somewhere where there are no stipulations on God. Or Gods. Or no God(s). Or on gender binaries. Or on what a family looks like. Or on what music you can and can’t sing, or play, or listen to. I am excited that Agnostic Scotland can hold those spaces, perform those rituals, celebrate those ceremonies. Everyone deserves a safe place to mark life’s milestones.”
Stella Hervey Birrell, Award Winning Poet and Writer, East Lothian, Scotland.
“I’m an agnostic and proud of it – happy to admit the limits of my knowledge and keen to celebrate mystery, ambiguity and our ability to exist in uncertainty. People like me need representation and ways to celebrate our position. Agnostic Scotland does that beautifully.”
Jules Evans, Philosopher and Author of Philosophy for Life and Other Dangerous Ideas
“We celebrated our wedding vows in an agnostic ceremony in Scotland. For me, it was most important to choose a celebrant who could craft a ceremony that represented our values – gender equality above all. Nearly every religious ceremony I’ve attended perpetuates the unequal language of ‘man and wife.’ I wanted to declare our love in a way that was empowering to both of us.”
