Replace “Godparents” With “Guideparents”

Replace “Godparents” With “Guideparents” January 28, 2015

Two years ago, I passed on to you readers an atheist friend’s request for help in figuring out what to call a secular equivalent of a “godparent”.

Tonight Rico commented with the suggestion I am most enthused about. We can call them “Guideparents”.

I love it. I’m happy to see the British Humanist Association uses this terminology already. This should be a widespread humanist atheist tradition.
