God-centered religions, such as the Judeo-Christian morality, assert the existence of a superior entity.
In God we have faith.
It appears that “humanism” is a similar worldview, but with the opposing assertion.
According to American Humanist, humanism’s moral standards are “properly established on human nature and experience alone,” and the publication defines humanism as “A joyful alternative to faiths that believe in a supernatural God and life after death.”
Greg Epstein, “Humanist Chaplin” at Harvard and MIT, has announced the formation of an organization called Humanists For Biden.
Epstein remarked, “We are delighted to announce an initiative of nonreligious people – humanists, atheists, agnostics, and others – proud to stand with the Biden-Harris campaign.
Therefore, it appears that this is an organized organization with spiritual beliefs, or religion.
There are now concerns that Catholic President Biden is promoting humanism via his government and that the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor has breached the constitutional right to freedom of religion.
Now, a group of Republicans, lead by Indiana Representative Jim Banks, are demanding answers for a program allegedly designed to “spread atheism globally,” as reported by Conservative Brief.
Fox News stated that Banks, chairman of the Republican Study Committee, wrote a letter to President Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken about the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor’s (DRL) funding program encouraging atheism and “humanism.”
“We are writing to express our grave concern that the State Department is using appropriated funds to support atheism and radical, progressive orthodoxy across the world,” the group said.
The letter states:
“In April 2021, the State Department’s Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor (DRL) announced a grant program to promote atheism worldwide.
The Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) was officially titled ‘DRL FY20 IRF Promoting and Defending Religious Freedom Inclusive of Atheist, Humanist, Non-Practicing and Non-Affiliated Individuals.’
It announced a ‘competitive’ c process that would award grants of up to $500,000 to organizations committed to the practice and spread of atheism and humanism, namely in South/Central Asia and in the Middle East/North Africa.” CONTINUE READING…
