Secular Humanism

Secular Humanism

Their 'happy human' symbol would be enough to ward off those that have a thinking brain. But why does this ideology grow? They take the morality of Christianity and cut out the God portion. They defy reality by inflating their morality (and inflation of ego follows with not accepting information that would threaten their crowdist strain of perception).

I'm a firm believer that left-wing Atheists are all Secular Humanists.

1. taken at face value it is seemingly harmless if not benevolent and most people don't question too deeply
2. it appeals to more people than not and they'll approvingly exterminate unbelievers (French Revolution, world wars, Bosnia, etc.)

Their numbers will keep increasing.

Try explaining this to them and they flip shit. They (unsurprisingly) just can't understand that the their ideology is the same as the people they claim to hate. That's another thing too. They'll never admit that they need something to hate, more so than their opponents, to feel good about themselves.

That's a very good point, often (maybe always) overlooked.
But then, the one true constant of leftism is its pervasive, ever-present hypocrisy.
Unfortunately, hypocrites are - by their very nature - unable to see it in themselves, although they are very eager to see it in others, whether or not it is actually there.

As Atheist movements gain more numbers, it is quite obvious that the secular humanist ideology will be embedded in their foundation.

What's sad is that Abrahamic religions are one of the last strongholds of tradition. And they're all fucking nuts.  :-\

It isn't so surprising that as spiritual interests turned ever more materialist over time they would turn into basket cases and end up gradually outcompeted by the explicitly materialist. Humanist appeal is all the rage today to keep the pews occupied.

Acceptance and tolerance have replaced repentance and forgiveness in the Christian lexicon as responsibility for infidelity is now on the institution rather than the individual sinner. That's precisely as politically left as society and government bearing the burden of criminality rather than the individual offender. The parallels are undeniable.
