Religion and Human Rights

This week, I saw an SUV with a surprising mix of bumper stickers. One sticker said “Bishop Watterson Lacrosse.” Another sticker was a Human Rights Campaign equality sign.

Humanists often hope to encourage people to more carefully consider their positions, so Portman’s case is worth examining.
