'Humanism is the denial of God and the total affirmation of man. Humanism is really nothing else but Marxism.' Karl Marx of Marxist/Leninist Communist fame said this; and Gus Hall (1910-2000), General Secretary of the United States Communist Party, said, 'I represent another Humanist Association the Communist Party. For we who are Communist definitely believe in Humanism.' From Nicolai Lenin (of Marxist/Leninist Communist fame), we hear, 'The chief enemy of Communism is the Christianity.' If we are to believe Karl Marx and Gus Hall, then we can conclude that the Christianity is the chief enemy of Humanism, as well. This is logical since the Christianity teaches to uphold the moral absolutes of God's law, while Humanism and Communism seek to 'dethrone' God, destroy His Law, and bring an end to that way of life based upon the Judeo-Christian Ethic.
Does Humanism really seek the destruction of all this? This is what the official journal of The American Humanist Association said along these lines in 1983:
'I am convinced that the battle for humankind's future must be waged and won in the PUBLIC SCHOOL CLASSROOM by teachers who correctly view their role as the proselytizers of a new FAITH . . . The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the old and the new; the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with all its adjacent evils and misery, and the new faith of Humanism . . .'
