Podcast Preaches to the Choir, so to Speak
(Re: Humanist Network News Podcast #48, Ethical Focus, Mar. 24, 2010.)
I have been listening to your monthly podcasts since 2009, and I have two related comments.
I'm looking for content on how to be an ethical, community-centered humanist and I am looking to hear about like-minded individuals and their organizations–not why we should degrade religion. Jende Huang needs to help humanists find community together and learn how we can all contribute to each other and our society. But he appears to be on a personal "crusade" to expose the evils of religion. I would venture a guess that most of the listeners have already conducted an intellectually rigorous exploration of this issue on our own and have made a decision to abandon religion–that's why they are listeners!
