The good side of paganism and atheism

Is that sometimes, real wisdom comes from it. Terry Prachet has got to be the funniest fiction writer on the planet right now. In his Discworld novels, witches, doing magic, are the closest thing to secular humanists. But one character, "Hag o' the hags", Granny Weatherwax, summed up a definition of sin that is the best I've ever seen. Evil begins, when you start treating people like things.

THAT is my real problem with abortion, with euthanasia, with immoral sexuality (be it hetro or homo) Evil begins when you treat human beings as things. The 24 year old virgin in that link knows this, why don't we?
