Condolences – Norman Bonney

Edinburgh Secular Society is sad to report the death, after a long fight with cancer, of our founding member and Honorary President Professor Norman Bonney. A respected public intellectual, constitutional expert and published author, Norman was passionate in his opposition to religious privilege, yet always counselled fellow ESS members to campaign with grace and decency.

He was the father of the Scottish secular movement and will be greatly missed by all colleagues and friends in the society to whom he was source of wisdom, honesty and inspiration.

A tribute fund that goes to Prostate Cancer UK is available at
