How do you describe secular humanism?

A question for all of my followers: When you identify your beliefs, how do you label secular humanism? Do you describe it as a philosophy, a school of thought, a lifestyle, a religion, a faith? Why do you use the terminology you do?

There are no wrong answers, and will be no judgment. I’m curious!

”..The God Graveyard, old gods that have been worshiped throughout our history but are no longer prayed to, how many more will be thrown into the wind?…”

That’s really creative and ingenious

Christians aren't being driven from public life -- they're just losing their unfair advantages

One of the prickly issues for a society that attempts to be liberal is how tolerant it must be of the intolerant. Writing in the last issue of this magazine, Cristina Odone says that she feels her rights as a taxpayer, a citizen and a Christian have been trampled on. She warns of a world around the corner in which religion will be a secret activity behind closed doors.

So, what is this dystopian vision of the future? A world where if you run a bed and breakfast, you cannot discriminate against gay couples, and you have to abide by the rules of the job you are contracted to do. That’s it, really.

"No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite."

—  Nelson Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom (1995)

Getting a little more personal here…

Tomorrow is my grandfather’s funeral. The majority of my family, including my grandparents, are Christian, so the service will be religious. I’m not looking for advice, but am more curious—how do you, personally, comfort someone who is religious and grieving? Do you prefer to comfort then on their own terms, by utilizing and explaining your own beliefs, or do you find some neutral middle ground?
