It's a lot of fun to watch secular humanists spin.
You have a group of people dedicated to the destruction of everything humanists stand for (equality, freedom, rights). You have other people, who may not be actively participating, but who choose to identify visibly with that group.
Then, a humanists says the second group "makes him nervous" on national television. That's it. Not that he hates them, or wants to do away with them or restrict their rights. People who identify with those who want to eliminate his way of life make him nervous.
The response? Fire him.
Then we have Tavis Smiley (who I normally like).
I want to interpret that in the best way (1 Cor 13:7). I think he is saying Christians (people who call themselves Christians) do all sorts of things. I can see that.
The problem is:
- Such people are, in all likelihood, not Christians (it is Christ who decides who is a Christian, not us)
- They don't do such things because they are Christians
- Other Christians do not approve
