Humanism is a Religion
The Norman Pyle Report
The Humanist magazine, the house organ of the religion of Humanism, recently conducted
an essay contest and published the prize-winning essays in its January-February 1983
issue. One startlingly frank essay by John J. Dunphy, called "A Religion for a New
Age," lays all the Humanist cards on the table. Some direct quotations from this
anti-Christian diatribe follow:
"I am convinced that the battle for humankind’s future must be waged and won in the
public school classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as proselytizers
of a new faith; a religion of humanity that recognizes and respects the spark of
what theologians call divinity in every human being.
“These teachers must embody the same selfless dedication as the most rabid fundamentalist
preachers, for they will be ministers of another sort, utilizing a classroom instead
of a pulpit to convey humanist values in whatever subject they teach, regardless
of the educational level – preschool day care or large state university.
“The classroom must and will become an area of conflict between the old and the new
– the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with all its adjacent evils and misery
and the new faith of Humanism, resplendent in its promise of a world in which the
never-realized Christian idea of ‘Love thy Neighbor’ will finally be achieved."
So there you have it. To parody a famous line, "Yes, Virginia, there is a Humanist
religion. Yes, Virginia, Humanist preachers are teaching their religion in the public
And it is more aptly called "Secular Humanism," because it has substituted faith
in man for faith in God.
Every time a teacher rejects or refuses to recognize God’s moral law as codified
in the Ten Commandments, and tells the child that we cannot or should not be judgmental
about stealing, lying, killing, maiming, blaspheming, fornication or coveting, that
teacher is teaching the religion of Humanism.
Every time a teacher rejects or ridicules the notion that God created man and the
earth, that teacher is teaching the religion of Humanism.
It is time to expose the hypocrisy of those who have so dogmatically chased God and
the Bible out of the schools in the name of freedom of religion, and then forced
their own Humanist religion on the children instead.
