To make matters worse, some use the term as a synonym for "humanitarian".
The Christian Humanist The Christian Humanist is an electronic journal to encourage thoughtful consideration and discussion of politics, relgion and ethics from the perspective of Christian Humanism. http://www.christian-perspectives.org
