"Free inquiry entails recognition of civil liberties as integral
to its pursuit, that is, a free press, freedom of communication,
the right to organize opposition parties and to join voluntary
associations, and freedom to cultivate and publish the fruits of
scientific, philosophical, artistic, literary, moral and
religious freedom."
Paul Kurtz
(1925-2012) American scientific skeptic, secular humanist, has been called "the father of secular humanism"
“A Secular Humanist Declaration,” in On The Barricades, 1989

    Kinda - sorta, I like it but something is lurking that isn't quite right. umm??? maybe "civil" liberties where full liberty is a faculty of birth right. hmmm ? ? ?

    Someone ought to remind today's secular humanist colleges. How did diversity become division, dialogue become censorship, and professors become authoritarian (i.e. everything the secularists have condemned the church for)?
