Humanists are Hypocrites
It is hard to avoid the conclusion that humanists are hypocrites.
- They claim to stand for tolerance, yet are thoroughly intolerant of Evangelical Christians.
- Humanists champion diversity and pluralism, and yet they work steadfastly to exclude Christian views from the public sphere.
- They claim to believe in no moral absolutes, and yet they make their own humanist opinions the new moral absolutes.
Scientists who dare to produce evidence that does not fit in with their evolutionary theories are denounced as “unscientific”.
Doctors and nurses who do not want to pervert their healing profession into one that takes innocent life are to be bullied by legislation and regulations into participating in abortions.
Teachers who believe in the sanctity of marriage, and are convinced that sexual activity before marriage is destructive are expected - against their own conscience - to teach their students situation ethics and perverse “alternative lifestyles”.
Humanists claim to be non-religious, to be neutral; but in reality they are a new religion. And not even that new. In so many ways modern day secular humanism is little more than a revised paganism of the ancient cults which engaged in human sacrifice, child sacrifice, temple prostitution and pornographic objects of worship.
The Humanist Manifesto of 1933 plainly calls the beliefs it espouses a religion. Nine times the Humanist Manifesto describes its beliefs as religious. For example: “Humanism is a philosophical, religious and moral point of view as old as human civilisation itself.” (from the introduction to Humanist Manifestos I and II, Buffalo, NY, 1977). The Manifesto lays out fifteen tenets of its religion, concluding with the words, “so stand the thesis of religious humanism.”
The Humanist Manifesto II makes it clear that man serves as his own god: “As non-theists we begin with humans not God, nature not Deity.” The Manifesto bluntly states “No Deity will save us; we must save ourselves.”
In the USA, the American Humanist Association has a religious tax exemption status. In most universities the atheist and humanist societies are listed under “religious” along with Campus Crusade for Christ, Christian Student Fellowship, etc.
The US Supreme Court has officially recognised humanism as a religion. How then can humanists continue to propagate the falsehood that they are “non-religious”, “religiously neutral”, and therefore should control the education of our children?
John Dewey, a signatory of the Humanist Manifesto, and author of “A Common Faith”, pioneered much of the secular humanist domination of public schools. Dewey described humanism in these words: “Here are all the elements for a religious faith that shall not be confined to sect, class or race. Such a faith has always been implicitly the common faith of mankind. It remains to make it explicit and militant.”
It is this militant secular humanism which is aggressively rewriting history, subverting morals, undermining the central tenets of the Christian faith, and seeking to hijack the hearts, minds and souls of our children.
That is why I say that humanists are hypocrites. They claim to be non-religious when humanism is plainly a religion. They claim to support tolerance, when they are the most bigoted and intolerant of all. They claim to be for diversity and pluralism when they want to exclude Christianity from the market place of ideas. They claim not to believe in any moral absolutes, whilst elevating their own standards, or the lack of them, to effectively be new moral absolutes which, should anyone question, they will open themselves up to discrimination, ridicule, lawsuits and worse.
The fact is that humanism is the most destructive religion of all time, and the most intolerant.
