A Bettter Life

Being a non religious, agnostic, atheist, etc. is very difficult in a society where

the vast majority of the population is deeply religious and to some extent; somewhat fundamentalist.
In Guatemala, often, being an atheist is seen as being evil or immoral and that’s why agnostic or atheist rather remain private with their lack of religious affiliations and believes.
For the last few years there have been efforts by individuals and a recently formed organization (Asociacion Guatemalteca de Humanistas Seculares) to promote and inform about atheist values and world/political views.
One of these efforts was to arrange a screening of the documentary A Better Life, by Chris Johnson. This documentary shows the world view by a handful of atheist from different parts of the world.
Something much needed in a society where not believing in god (a) means believe in the devil.
