Re: “An open letter to Scrooge McTrump

Happy Holidays, Jeremy, from a humanist atheist to a humanist Christian. While we may disagree on some theological points, we agree on all the substantive issues that matter.

Re: “White Christianity is part of the problem

What I liked about this piece was that there was no mention of God or Jesus. Jeremy Rutledge is a true humanist when he indicates that the religious and nonreligious (Im an atheist) should cooperate in building a better society as we struggle to achieve freedom, dignity, and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or sexual orientation.

Here's a piece for the Huffington Post I wrote about this issue, titled Heritage and Hate.

Re: “Colin Kerr says the GOP has no monopoly on religion

Will Moredock shows Colin Kerr to be the kind of Christian that secular humanists could love. However, I’m puzzled by Kerr’s tallying of God’s votes. Does he really think homosexuality is OK because the Bible only has five verses that condemn it? How many verses would it take for Kerr to reverse positions? The Bible has many more passages in support of slavery, with nary a verse that condemns it.

Either there is a god who is responsible for what is in the Bible, or there isn’t. If there is, as conservative Christians believe, then it only takes one passage to condemn an action or an entire class of people. If there isn’t, as secular humanists believe, then one should pick and choose only those parts of the Bible or any other book that makes sense. Kerr appears to focus on passages where God behaves like a secular humanist, and ignores the rest. Good for him. Moredock described Kerr’s journey from conservative to liberal Christian. Perhaps he is on a slippery slope that will lead him to secular humanism. If so, I would be the first to welcome Colin Kerr into the fold.
