New Year Message from the Vice President

We look forward with enthusiasm to 2022 after what has been a challenging year for AIK and, but also a mixed year for humanity and the voice of reason.

2021 ended on a high note with the decision of the Registrar of Societies to approve the incoming Executive Committee of AIK. The current leadership is committed to promoting the growth and interaction of atheists in Kenya, based on our 7 objectives and 5 core values.

Our focus this year will be to build a Kenyan society on the foundation of separation between church and state. This should be the cornerstone of our religious freedom, ensuring that the government does not support religious practices, favor one religion over another or unnecessarily interfere with the private practice of religion.

We believe the separation of church and state is not only a moral issue but also a practical, legal, and political one. When church and state are mixed, it harms them both. When the government imposes on religion, religion loses the independence guaranteed to it by the Constitution.

Let us resolve to make 2021 the year that reason, science and humanity once again claim center stage in Kenya. I urge you all, atheists, humanists, secularists, and rationalists, to join us in the battle for hearts and minds. Let us challenge the unspoken assumptions of the religious that their ancient texts and antiquated misogynistic, homophobic, anti-modern worldviews. They have no relevance at all in the modern world.

May I wish you all a happy, healthy, and successful New Year.

Moureen Temba

Vice President, Atheists In Kenya Society
