Be advised! BE ADVISED!!!
I have an agenda.
My “agenda” is to put ignorance, obedience, and conformity in all forms… religious and political… out of business.
My “agenda” is to help billions of victims of indoctrination to recover the natural curiosity and confidence that was stolen from them by their ignorant elders and malevolent overlords.
My “agenda” is to promote freedom FROM religion as a basic human right.
My “agenda” is to encourage everyone to reject “revelation”, “authority” and tradition as sources of knowledge and wisdom.
My “agenda” is to put an end to “socialization” by censorship and coercion.
My “agenda” is to encourage everyone to see with their own eyes, hear with their own ears, think with their own brains, feel with their own hearts… and to draw their own conclusions based on evidence, logic, and their innate sense of decency.
My “agenda” is to put the preachers, priests, imams, rabbis, gurus, politicians, and other snake oil salesmen out of business… not by force, but by persuading their fawning flocks and constituents to find better things to do with their precious time and hard-earned money.
My “agenda” is to help people see that religion… not some of it… ALL of it… is inherently divisive.
My “agenda” is to help people see that religion always has, and continues to, stifle material and moral progress everywhere.
My “agenda” is to challenge the diplomatic immunity of religions everywhere.
My “agenda” is to encourage everyone to challenge “the authorities”… not just to question their proclamations, but by what right they have ordained themselves.
My “agenda” is to foster global solidarity based on secular values… basic commitments to decency and fairness that are universal, timeless, natural, and self-evident.
My “agenda” is to encourage everyone to trust their doubts… and to express them openly.
My “agenda” is to encourage those still in the closet to come out… to stand up and be counted… without apologies or reservations.
My “agenda” is to bear witness for a life-affirming worldview based on LOGIC and LOVE.
My “agenda” is to socialize secular values and responsible freedom as the only enduring basis for peace, justice, happiness, and human flourishing.
My “agenda” is to socialize a mature version of the golden rule, as easy to understand as it is difficult to live by: Love yourself, Love others.
Have I left anything out? You bet I have!
