Humanist Thought of the Week: 7 22 2008
Stepping into a pile
There is a joke about Humanists.
You can tell who is a Humanist because they are the ones being shot for blasphemy.
It isn’t that we go looking for trouble.
We honestly don’t realize that what we say might be considered blasphemous.
It always catches me by surprise.
I wasn’t raised religious, so the idea that some things are sacred is just foreign to me.
Thank goodness I live in America – we don’t have any blasphemy laws here.
Otherwise, I’d be in a world of trouble.
Our right to think and say anything (short of inciting violence) is actually protected.
You know a Humanist had to have had a hand in writing that law.
