Secular Humanists Bid All ‘A Merry un-Christmas’

Here is yet another "poor me" column by a Christian who insists that atheists are "attacking" Christmas. I think it's good that the trip to see Charlie Brown's Christmas was optional, but what are teachers thinking when they schedule a field trip to a CHURCH? The kids who opt out because they're Jewish or nonbelievers get singled out for embarrrassment or outright bullying, and no legitimate school purpose is served. Parents should take their kids to such events on their own. And still another annoying refrain is this notion that morality requires a belief in God. What does she think "humanism" means?

What, do you think kids are going to get harmed just by stepping into one?

"What does she think 'humanism' means?"
It means morality decided by people themselves, basically by power or popular vote. In other words, morality with such a quicksand-like basis that it might as well not be morality at all.

No, it means morality that is based on treating other humans the way you would want to be treated -- the Golden Rule, in other words, which is NOT a Christian concept but one that dates back to the earliest tribal societies.

We do not need a god to tell us what is right and wrong in regard to the way we relate to the rest of the human race. If you need a god or a book to tell you that, you are stuck in a childlike state and have never matured enought to develop your own moral code.

What are teachers thinking when they schedule a field trip to a mosque? Seem to be in vogue these days.

That “most wonderful time of the year” has arrived, and with it, most predictably, another round of attacks (yawn) by Secular Humanists doing their best to destroy the season by removing the Christ child from the crèche.

Yes, these are the same people who think goodness exists without God (with a capital “G”) and lose their free-thinking minds at courthouse displays of the Ten Commandments. Nothing against all the free thinking atheists out there, but what rational argument can be made against “Thou shalt not kill” or “Honor thy Father and Mother”?

You’d think free thinking would involve thinking...
