That's not a gratuitious insult but fully deserved.

What have I got against humanism? Well the fact that it (sometimes) wants to be included under a religious umbrella as per the article surely goes some way to explaining my dislike. As Steve Hill says they are a belief system and as such (sometimes) to be ranked among other religious belief systems.

And as I suggested they muddy the waters, as an atheist I don't want to be associated with any group of people connected by a common set of aims, philosophy or (god forbid) "mission statement"

Comment 8 by Stevehill I'm not a BHA member, but am supportive of a lot of what they do (such as the Atheist Bus Campaign).

Well, I support (morally) some of the work of that bastion of evil the catholic church
