Exactly, that is why I became a Minister this past week and I am currently finishing my theory and the foundation of my "religion" for atheists who want to believe in the afterlife. This "religion" is based on science and the proof of the unexplained. I would have liked to call it Scientology but that is already taken.

They manage to continuously shuffle pedophile priests around and keep them completely out of the hands of the law.. so I tend think they are capable of anything..

I hope to think they learned a hard lesson there...since settling, why would they shuffle? Doesn't add up to me....those offenders are out!

We?

Finally?

OT, the International Humanist and Ethical Union - the main international group representing the humanist movement - has been active since 1952. It's roots go significantly further back.

The IHEU is a recognized NGO and participates at the UN, UNESCO, ACHPR, and the Council of Europe. Their member groups and affiliates are involved in everything from Human Rights debates at the highest level to digging wells and building schools in third world countries.

There's nothing new about this. You're just waking up to it.

Pretty ironic for an institution founded by reformist/Puritan fathers in the 17th century...

But then again, the real religion of the Ivy Leagues and similar institutions hasn't been Christianity for a long time. No, their religion is called "Guilt about Western culture." (Just as long as it doesn't threaten Harvard's $20-plus-billion endowment, of course...)
