That quote wasn't from the article I linked to. It's from a related article, written by the same guy. I hadn't even read it, until I had to look for it to see where you got that quote from.Even your article from an atheist website states:
"To what extent, and even if, tax exemptions should be given to religious organizations and churches depends on why tax exemptions exist at all."
So it is arguing them as a whole and not against just churches. So why make it a church issue? Does that seem honest to you? Why not simply argue against tax exemptions?
He isn't arguing against tax exemptions.
You could either be talking about IANS' proposed changes to the US Constitution or the Affirmations of Humanism. He didn't come up with the Affirmations of Humanism. I didn't read his modified US Constitution.I should ask you that!
First off, anybody can make a Wikipedia entry.
But more importantly, are you really implying anybody who views themselves as a secular humanist follows the constitution IANS made up for you guys?
You mean a group of people pretending? That sounds like a church.Sorry, but when you make up your own constitution, you are officially a pretend group on the Internet
You don't really want to play Compare and Contrast, do you?
