With the secular humanism decision in Alabama, we reap the fruit of the appointment of ideologues to the federal bench. Secular humanism is a religion invented and defined by those who are opposed to it. Actually, religion is the service and adoration of a god or gods defined as a supernatural being or beings. Secular humanism is no more a religion than is communism or capitalism. These are ideologies, not religions.
Theology and metaphysics are the studies that deal with religion because they concern the supernatural and its relationship with man. The social sciences that fundamentalists label as secular humanism deal with man and his relationship with society. No way can the social sciences be considered as religion.
