Topic: Public Example of Misogyny that Affects All Women

Hope wrote - "Humanism- an outlook or system of thought attaching prime importance to human rather than divine or supernatural matters. Humanist beliefs stress the potential value and goodness of human beings, emphasize common human needs, and seek solely rational ways of solving human problems."

This is just the blame game at work. 'It's not our fault that the world is screwed - it's the Church's fault - it mislead us'.

Look, you have to know that the world was screwed long before there ever was a Church. Long before there was organised religion. And it was humans and humanism that caused it. Humans have been taking liberties with less powerful life forms ever since they could light fires and build fences. That was how they survived and it was how a pecking order was formed. It didn't matter too much when there was just a few million of us, but now that there is a few billion people in the world we are all running scared and blaming others for the mess we are in. And it is all caused by humans who fiddle with words while Australia burns.

Foundit, you cannot be serious! In Muslim countries and in some Catholic countries women - and men- have no choice about joining or not joining such religious institutions. Even if they are not members or adherents of official religious centres they are still forced to do as they are told by the men who have the power. Your argument falls, FD.
