A few weeks ago I was a guest on a local (Minneapolis) Cable TV show hosted by the Minnesota Humanists.
It was a really interesting conversation. One of the comments that struck me was the host mentioning that he had looked around the internet and had noticed that there were some people who were not, shall I say, “big fans” of mine. I mentioned that Christianity is a big family with many squabbles. He said, (my paraphrase) yes I have seen that, but it is not quite as bad as it is in the battles between the Humanist and Atheist (you can see that part at roughly the 4 minute mark). It was strangely encouraging to know that our squabbles are not only caused by our religious sensibilities.
I’m sure there are some who will be bothered by how much in common I have with a Humanist, but I thought it was really great. And, since I am often accused of being a humanist, this was certainly fun.
We also talked about the “Nones” as a movement within Humanism.
