I'm concerned about a group of people selling the idea of suicide as does the Humanist group.
SEVENTH: To enhance freedom and dignity the individual must experience a full range of civil liberties in all societies. This includes freedom of speech and the press, political democracy, the legal right of opposition to governmental policies, fair judicial process, religious liberty, freedom of association, and artistic, scientific, and cultural freedom. It also includes a recognition of an individual's right to die with dignity, euthanasia, and the right to suicide. We oppose the increasing invasion of privacy, by whatever means, in both totalitarian and democratic societies. We would sa***uard, extend, and implement the principles of human freedom evolved from the Magna Carta to the Bill of Rights, the Rights of Man, and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.[HUMANIST MANIFESTO II]
we have several members on this forum who are members of the Humanist group of The Shoals.
a carful study so far of this group and their attitudes point to a Jim Jones type mentality and they do consider thems to be a religious Humanist group.
these people do have children , the metric being now.
i'm not atall comfortable with young innocent children being exposed to this mentality.
adot, since you are involved with this group can you give concerned citizens assurance that the humanist are not exposing minors to suicide as an accepted alternative?
On another thread Infomercial asks this question:
"Don't you think it's the humanists' business what they teach their kids. Suicide isn't murder."
Question: Do you agree that teaching children the option of suicide?
