Funny. Can you even give an example of secular humanistic effort?

Not sure what you mean by that.

Kindest regards,

I see, so a humanist is generally someone who fights against Christianity. Gee, I never would have imagined that.

Only when Christians try to push non-humanistic values as law instead of keeping them to their cult.
Scientists don't believe. They conclude based on evidence.

Remember, you're not allowed to criticize the right-wing snowflakes' policy choices because that's racist! :D

Is the US so horrible, toadie?

Why don't you tell us what you think instead of pretending you can tell us what we think?

Ok Sparhafoc, I will tell you what I really think.

I want every person in the the world who is willing to work and who is not a criminal to be able to easily immigrate to the US. Every refugee who wants to work and has been properly vetted goes straight to the US and not to some country in western europe. Countries like the UK or Germany are such a sad place for hard working immigrants to live.

Forget immigrants, they're sad for hard working plain old people. ;)

I believe Sparhafoc is using deprecating humour. It's the only real bind between British cultures.
if constructive debate is allowed to progress, better ideas will ultimately supplant worse ideas.
