Freedom is the only fear
Contrary to what letter writer Vivian Erwin believes ("Fear humanists, instead," Aug. 11), the only thing conservative religious people have to fear from liberal secular humanists is freedom.
Secular humanists, for example, want adults to be free to marry the person of their choosing and not be constrained by ancient, unsubstantiated religious dogma.
Religious-right conservatives such as Michele Bachmann are free to impose religion-based restrictions on themselves, but not on others ? that is theocracy.
