Yeah, we’ve seen the results from the 70 million Ukrainians starved to death by Stalin to the 55 + million babies killed by abortion in America alone since 1973… The glories of secular humanism never cease.
You must appreciate the utter hypocrisy of living off the moral capital of Christianity while spitting in Christ’s face.
First we need to be clear: atheism and secular humanism are not synonymous. Neither Stalin nor Mao were humanists.
For 1,900 years, conservative/orthodox Christianity supported the subjugation of women in society, denying women positions of leadership and denying them the right to participate in government and to vote. The principles of humanism gave women the right to vote, not conservative Christianity and its support of the biblical position of the “submission of women” to men in the church and home, and by insinuation—society.
Why should a Jew, Muslim, or secular humanist be forced to close his or her business on the Christian holy day? Yet, conservative Christians have imposed “blue laws” on non-Christians for almost 2,000 years.
Once again, conservative Christians used the Bible to discriminate against persons of African descent due to an alleged curse placed by God on the ancestor of the black race. The separation of the races, especially in the case of mixed-race marriages, was touted as the will of the Christian God. Humanists helped to defeat this conservative Christian social injustice.
No sector of human activity is more regulated by conservative Christianity than what one does with his or her genitals, even what happens with them in the privacy of one’s own bedroom. Fornication laws were rampant in the colonies. Placing “fornicators” in the stocks and even branding them was common practice. Today, conservative Christians for the most part have given up trying to regulate what heterosexual adults do in the privacy of their bedrooms, but conservative Christians still want to deny same-sex adults the right to exercise personal liberty in their bedrooms. If it were not for Secular Humanism, conservative Christianity would have Big Brother sitting in your bedroom, monitoring your every move!
