You missed my sarcasm.

excluding non-religious people while at the same time admitting people of other faiths is obviously very wrong and unfair, BUT it may indicate that religions dislike each other less than they used to, and I suppose this is a good thing?

You keep giving us your opinion on them yet never back it up when questioned. Now you're telling us what to do.

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

so, coffee, what are the antagonisms between humanism and liberalism? What do these words mean if anything?

@andrewcopson

THE COURT HAS SAID HUMANIST MARRIAGES MUST BE LEGALLY RECOGNISED. Is it just impossible these days for journalists to report any legal judgement correctly as to the details? This is both inaccurate and misleading. @guardian

I don't think humans need to have a shared doctrine in order to have solidarity. I believe that we can all share my motto: "Live and help live, live and love. Help all, harm none."

Humanism sounds great but it does not work in practice, and that is why there is no humanist country anywhere in the the world.

1. What does humanism working in practice look like?

2. What does a humanist country look like?

If you are unable to answer both these questions, please say why you just said what you did.

The questions are meaningless to me as I had stopped believing in it or call myself a humanist

Indeed. But you expressed a view and I was wondering if you were able to back up that view, regardless of what you choose to call yourself.
