The Plague of Pietism #2:
Secular Humanism & Postmodernism

By | 1 Jul 2019

What is Secular Humanism? Point of fact: secular humanism is a religion in its own right. Surprised? I was, too, when I stumbled across an article mentioning how the United States Supreme Court had declared it as such in the 1961 case of Torcaso v.
