Humanists are often asked, "If you don't believe in a higher
authority, how do you know what is right or wrong?". We
start finding the answer by observing that man's
responsibilities and attitudes toward their fellow man have
evolved. Slavery and barbaric treatment of women were
once accepted behavior in the bible and society. Morals
and ethics are normative standards we discover together
over time. They are tested by their consequences and are
amenable to rational guidance.
We believe in the moral decencies of honesty and integrity,
fairness and justice, tolerance and compassion. We abhor
discrimination and subjugation.
