On Secular Humanism

Like Christianity, per se, Secular Humanism is not a monolithic belief system. Secular Humanism is a term recognized by both the humanists themselves and by their critics.

Furthermore, the term secularism was introduced by one of the pioneers of the movement. For details of the history, see Wikipedia's article, Secular Humanism.
