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!

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?
