An Atheist Yearning for Community

The link below is to an item by an atheist on a gay blog site that expresses the author’s yearning for the kind of community that religion offers, even though he rejects religious beliefs. The writer speculates that his Catholic upbringing may have laid the foundations for these feelings.  The author doesn’t mention Humanism, but as I see it part of the Humanist project is to find ways to meet this need for community without reverting to supernatural beliefs.

    If he’s at Wayne State University, he should look up Ron Aronson, the Humanist author who teaches at the same school!
