Is Secular Humanism Neutral Concerning God and Religion
The issue is not whether schools will include religion or remain neutral. Secular Humanism as mentioned in the earlier posts is a religion!
Charles Darwin is still one of the most revered secular humanists. Prior to Darwinian evolution, students were taught that they were created by God: hence, they believed their lives had a purpose. Today, students are taught that their ancestors swung from trees and ate bananas and that they happened by chance, not design: hence, their life has no purpose or design. This has laid the foundation against a belief in God and has led to feelings of despair and worthlessness in the hearts of America's youth.
Another famous secular humanist is Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood. She founded PP to remove human weeds (African Americans) from our society. She also aggressively promoted sexual promiscuity among young people and longed for the day when a woman would have the right to pay to have her child killed while still inside her womb.
Another notion raised earlier is that individuals don't need God or religion to be good. The question here is who defines good. Some people believe that it's good to steal the belongings of others. A man who lives in my neighborhood is on the sex offender's list because he felt it was proper to abuse another sexually. I have neighbors who believe that wife swapping is OK. If all parties agree, who's to say it's wrong? What if a father and daughter or a brother and sister wanted to have a consensual sexual relationship? Who's to say it's wrong? What about NAMBLA (the North American Man Boy Love Association)? If a man and a minor boy want to have a consensual sexual relationship, who's to say it's wrong?
With secular humanism, you invariably have a lowering of the standards of society -- because the standard, God's Law (the Ten Commandments and the Bible) has been replaced with the idea that I can decide for myself what is right and what is wrong but what if I'm Hitler? What if I'm Stalin? Who's to say I'm wrong?
Our nation was founded by Christians who believed in the standard of the Bible, God's Law, and the Ten Commandments. They believed in public, government sponsored calls for prayer and humiliation before God. They believed in publicly funding education so that our nation's children could be able to read the Bible.
Either we will choose God's word, which doesn't change, or we will choose secular humanism, which allows every man, woman, and child to decide for themselves. With the former, we have respect for God, life, and property. With the latter, we have the slippery slope of every lowering morals and standards we now find ourselves in.
You can choose to do things your own way if you so desire, but do know that there is a price to pay for such a choice.
"The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 6:23.
