    Reminds me of when Madonna came out with "A little Prayer" That was over 20 years ago and people were saying the same thing. Helped her career rocket.It's a ploy for controversy and it's working.. GOOD STORY. Thanks for writing this

    Oh, and I forgot the most important secular sacred cow:

    11. There are no sacred cows

    Secular humanism has its sacred values, as well. Touch any of these sacred cows and you can expect some amusing emotional reactions:

    1. The normalization of homosexuality (indeed, virtually all forms of sexual expression)
    2. Abiogenesis/naturalistic philosophy
    3. The public censorship of supernaturalist philosophies
    4. Unborn child murder justified by the freedom of female sexuality
    5. Abhorrence of the death penalty for even the most heinous of murderers (contrast this with number four)
    6. The dated, positivistic assumption that science alone delivers real knowledge, or at least knowledge that is of any practical import
    7. Belief that the Flying Spaghetti Monster succeeds as satire(see my comments under that news article)
    8. Belief that secular humanism as a philosophy should be favorably treated in a class of its own, apart from other philosophies
    9. Belief that naturalism is an a posteriori belief, and not a priori
    10. Belief that individual actions that do not directly impact others do not have a profound impact upon the health of society collectively.

    What is sacred to a secularist? Just push the right buttons to find out.

    Another Singer making a fool out of herself.

    We live in a world where what has been considered right and sacred is now being trampled under the feet of those who have no respect for common decency. Movies and the Internet are full of violence, pornography, and hate. It is not politically correct to speak out against homosexuality, yet it is fine to belittle those values that gave this country freedom. What a sad world our children and grandchildren are left with. But we have seen it all before. Each generation has to learn and pay the price.

    Andy Warhol is the only one who has a right to be offended, and I doubt he is.

    Isn't anything sacred?

    Well, no, not really. And that's a good thing!

    While I don't really care she did this, its true there isn't much difference between Duck Dynasty sharing his feelings about homosexuality and Beyoncé clearing mocking something very sacred to Christians.
