My first post at Skeptic Freethought went up yesterday! I revisited the topic of ridiculous claims made about secular humanists by the Religious Right. This time I took a more serious tone compared to my earlier sarcastic rebuttal. I also examined why the "good without God" message of secular humanism would be so alarming to a religious fundamentalist.
|Is this message so threatening that it warranted vandalism?|
To sum up my thoughts on the matter:
It’s because, framed within a worldview in which a sly Devil seeks to trick gullible humans into abandoning faith for worldly concerns, a friendly and inviting godless philosophy is far more dangerous than an aggressive militant adversary.
