THE HUMANIST IN A RELIGIOUS WORLD
 
To be a Catholic or a Muslim for example, one has to accept all the doctrines of Catholicism or Islam as being revealed by God. So you cannot be a member of a religion and an Humanist. In bigoted areas, the Humanist can fake allegiance to the Church or a religion to dodge trouble for himself or herself. The Humanist who attends Church does it only as a spectator and not as a participant is to find a way to turn as many in the congregation away from God and religions as possible. Normally it is preferable to stay away and discourage churchgoing. One good tip is to ask awkward questions that the religionists cannot answer and which will produce doubt. Believers in religion will fall away quicker when somebody who pretends to be a friend to the Church undermines its teaching but in a friendly way. Give the Church no money with which to spread its stranglehold.

The ideal thing for Humanists is to get their names off the Church membership rolls and separate completely. In some cases, the Humanist can get her name off the books and still keep up appearances. The long lists of members that religion has, have a lot to do with the undesirable power it has for it seems to wield political clout.

The children of Humanists must be raised as no religion until they are free to decide. They can only be baptised when there is a real risk of grave persecution if they are not. Advise your parents and friends as to why you can't let the children be baptised. Infant baptism or infant circumcision is just religion taking advantage of the child's vulnerability for the child would belong to another religion and follow that if he or she were initiated into it instead. The purpose of the rite is to give the clergy the right to indoctrinate the children - a right that nobody, even parents, can ever have. Let nobody steal your child's thinking.
