433: Should it worry me that the government is demonizing secular people?

The question being asked this week:"Hey Bart, I listened to a speech by Attorney General William Barr at Notre Dame University, in which he denounced ‘militant secularists’ and said they were trying to destroy the ‘traditional moral order’. Does this worry you as much as it does me?"Bart Campolo sits down with John Wright to answer this question, and - spoiler - it's a resounding 'Yes.' Not only did Barr set out to make the ludicrous claims about secularists that he did, but Secretary of State Mike Pompeo promoted his own speech on the United States State Department website with the headline, "Being a Christian Leader." Bart sees this as a direct response to the fire under which Trump finds himself, a rallying of the base, and shares some thoughts about how secular people can articulate their own positive values in a powerful refutation of this demonization.Mentioned at the end: The Happiness Lab with Dr. Laurie Santos.—Follow this podcast to stay up-to-date:Twitter: @HumanizeMePodInstagram: @HumanizeMePodcastFacebook Group: Facebook.com/Groups/1772151613053280Check outPatreon.com/HumanizeMe!

430: What It Means to Be Moral, with Phil Zuckerman

How do we decide whether it's good or bad to intervene in global warming or growing inequality? Or how to treat our dog? Phil Zuckerman has written a new book giving a foundational framework for secular - nonreligious - morality.In this conversation Phil talks with Bart Campolo about the four reasons you can't get morality from God, and the ways to build a secular ethic that, he thinks, is a better one. They discuss the problems with a God-based morality, the Euthyphro Dilemma and the nature of morality itself. They get into a debate about how objective morality is, and talk about how to get an 'ought' from an 'is'. And, hopefully, they'll leave you with the idea that the basis for how unbelievers act in the world is not grounded on nothing.Phil Zuckerman's new book, What It Means to Be Moral: Why Religion Is Not Necessary for Living an Ethical Life, can be found here:https://www.counterpointpress.com/dd-product/what-it-means-to-be-moral/—Follow this podcast to stay up-to-date:Twit...
