Re: [humanism-174] Check out 'Jesus Of Nazareth:" Pope's Final Book On Jesus ...

Normally, I do not care what people choose to believe either, but religious delusions and alternative universes affect all of our lives, from theocratic social legislation to reality denial to politics to war. When the head of a major religion declares that fantastical elements of a story are true, but focuses instead on the most mundane and possibly real aspect (animals being found in stables), then I DO have a problem with those beliefs.  This is after all the same man who has blocked investigations into priest/child abuse and declared contraceptives to be immoral.
 
This is also why we discuss these things in this forum.

I suppose that it is part of Secular Humanism to show people the error of their ways.  As part libertarian, as long as it does not personally negatively affect me, I usually do not care what you choose to believe of disbelieve.

So animals in a stable/manger, that's just fantasy, but a virgin birth and magic stars, that's solid stuff! lol
