Kurtz was anxious that secular humanism should not simply be a reaction to Christian fundamentalism and took care to identify threats posed by fanatical Islamic sects, cults and the paranormal. The defense of Jerome of Prague before the Council reminded him of Cato of Utica. The movement was largely founded on the ideals of Italian scholar and poet Francesco Petrarca, which were often centered around humanity's potential for achievement. S. delegation was headed by Secretary of State Warren Christopher, “who promoted human rights as Deputy Secretary of State in the Carter Administration.” A “key purpose” of his speech, “viewed as the Clinton Administration’s first major policy statement on human rights,” was “to defend the universality of human rights,” rejecting the claims of those who plead “cultural relativism.” Christopher said that “the worst violators are the world’s aggressors and those who encourage the spread of arms,” stressing that “the universality of human rights set[s] a single standard of acceptable behavior around the world, a standard Washington would apply to all countries.” In his own words, “The United States will never join those who would undermine the Universal Declaration” and will defend its universality against those who hold “that human rights should be interpreted differently in regions with non-Western cultures,” notably the “dirty dozen” who reject elements of the UD that do not suit them.

In a sense, Christianity always accepted the separation of the two spheres. It is the "seven horned, ten-headed monster" in Revelation that denies all moral or spiritual aims. Humanism, in the final analysis then, is nothing more than mankind accepting responsibility for his own moral affairs. The discussion turned to the topic of our interactions and “actions” within religious settings. It should be noted that because the New Ager seeks to elevate himself to godhood, he must lower the majesty and personhood of the true God.

With two horrific world wars, a worldwide depression, the holocaust, the Vietnam War and the appearance of nuclear weapons, twentieth century realist artists had no shortage of subjects. The Indian example: It was under the direct influence of these two great heritages that the rationalist movement in India, emerging in the beginning of the 20th century out of ongoing social struggles against priesthood and religion based oppression, grew and sharpened its intellectual weapons. So, what we need is a sans serif with character variations that seem familiar -- what is commonly called a humanist sans. "Sans-serif typefaces with oval shapes and variations in stroke thickness to create a more graceful, human appearance."

I believe moral values are derived from desires, period. The economic consequences of such a policy should be obvious. One of the earliest forerunners of contemporary chartered humanist organizations was the Humanistic Religious Association formed in 1853 in London. Moral behavior, therefore, draws a person to God. But those who become social activists for secular humanism have crossed the line, and I am calling them out. However, by the mid-to-late 16th century, even the universities, though still dominated by Scholasticism, began to demand that Aristotle be read in accurate texts edited according to the principles of Renaissance philology, thus setting the stage for Galileo's quarrels with the outmoded habits of Scholasticism.

The Renaissance brought in New Conceptions of Life and the World.--The Renaissance effected in the Christian West an intellectual and moral revolution so profound and so far-reaching in its consequences that it may well be likened to that produced in the ancient world by the incoming of Christianity. Supernatural events such as miracles (in which physical laws are defied) and psi phenomena, such as ESP, telekinesis, etc., are not dismissed out of hand, but are viewed with a high degree of skepticism.” There is nothing here that contradicts the Satanic view of the world.
