Humanist Network News
Humanist Network News, or HNN, is a weekly Internet magazine produced by the American Humanist Association (AHA). A typical edition of HNN contains news, opinion, lifestyle pieces, cartoons and humor...just like a regular newspaper except each piece addresses the nonreligious philosophy of humanism. HNN articles are written by the staff of the AHA and a variety of guest writers. HNN is published every Wednesday.

My Message from the Editor last week sparked a lot of commentary—so much that I still haven’t read through all of the emails! I thank you, our readers, for taking the time to weigh in on the topic of religious humanism and secular humanism (note that I didn’t say “versus,” as my general sense from most of the responses is that we should not be at odds with each other—we have enough of that battling the Religious Right!). The next issue of Humanist Network News will be published April 3, and I plan to publish some of the best responses then.
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this week’s issue of HNN! We are always looking for new writers, features, and story ideas, so feel free to write to us at email@example.com with your ideas on what you’d like to see in future issues.
