The unique path of Humanism.

My name is Brother Barney, and I'm an ordained minister of Humanism.

I was born 21 years ago in a small town in small Indiana. I've been neck deep in religious politics my entire life and it wasn't of my own accord. If you've never been to the Midwest, I'm sure you've at least heard of how seriously Midwestern states take their ideologies.

I abandoned my God at 15 years old and have never looked back. The very idea of his existence seems very illogical to me, but I was still forced to bend my knee to those dated beliefs until I reached adulthood.

For the first couple years of my solitary self reflection I was just a wondering atheist. I knew what didn't exist but I didn't know where to go from there.

That changed when the religious freedom act was passed in my state. I seen first hand what the legal system was willing to do to hurt people who don't follow the flow.

It pissed me off. It still pisses me off.

So I became a Secular Humanist. As soon as I learned what Humanism stood for they had me. I became ordained so I could marry those who don't want to jump through the hoops of traditional institutions.

What they don't tell you is how lonely it can get as a Humanist in this part of the country. There are very few Atheists near me, let alone brothers and sisters.

Humanism is on track to improve the trajectory of mankind, but damn it's a quite track to walk.
