And, in the case if at least one theologian, an atheist Christian. But that one is getting a little bit exotic!

Meh, full stops….I can take them or leave them 🙂
Quokkagirl…this is preciely my point. The BHA’s understanding of the term Humanist is a little…fluffy. Its actually quite funny.

Personally, one of the many many many things I sometimes describe myself as is ‘spiritual Humanist’….on the whole I try not to describe myself unless I absolutely have to, it tends to cause confusion.

At its root, Humanism is an ethical rather than a philosophical or metaphysical term.

Just to add to the confusion, you can also be a ‘secular Christian’.

Not bothered about full stops though Jenny….?

Ah, but Jenny, just last year I heard a spokesperson for the BHA (can’t remember his title but it was top level) castigating those of faith for ‘speaking to their imaginary friend’. So now I am confused. If that’s the ‘official’ line (which I thought was extremely funny BTW) how can the rest of us begin to understand your point? I am interested – do tell.

Apostrophe’s bug me two, Jeny!! but not as much as those fanatically religious atheists who won’t stop ranting about their Divine Lord Darwin and the reasons – yes, reasons – they’ve inferred from his work why you should not believe in god.

Life’s too short for religion, god knows.

Actually, this is what the well dressed atheist is wearing. Contrary to popular belief (including, so far as I can tell. the BHA) ‘Humanist’ does not necessarily imply ‘atheist’. ‘Secular Humanist’ implies athiest but there is absolutely no logical contradiction in calling yourself a Christian Humanist.
This is one of those things that ‘bugs’ me :-)…like apostrophes
