Rejecting religion by imitating it

On April 27, 2008, in General, by Neil Stevens

You’re doing it wrong:

The Institute for Humanist Studies, an Albany, N.Y.-based nonprofit, is calling attention to its calendar of atheist holidays on it Web site, The group wants nonbelievers (or at least people who don’t celebrate religious holidays) to have a handy reference guide of the calendar of holidays honoring free-thinkers, banned books and nature, among other themes.

People, if you’re going to make a whole institute to oppose religion, don’t do it by imitating religion from the get-go. Instead of creating an alternative, you’re just making your own religion, complete with its own holy days, saints, and everything. All that does is make you look anti-Christian, not pro-Humanism.
