Humanism is an outlook or system of thought attaching prime importance to human rather than divine or supernatural matters. Humanist beliefs stress the potential value and goodness of human beings, emphasize common human needs, and seek solely rational ways of solving human problems.

The Humanist Forum of Central Kentucky, as a chapter of the American Humanist Association and a recognized local group of The Unitarian Universalist Humanist Association, provides a humanist perspective in strong support of separation of religion from government, preservation and restoration of the environment, protection of civil rights and liberties, and promotion of personal choice regarding introduction of new life, family structure, and death with dignity. Though humanists are not monolithic on every issue–we are a community that encourages tolerance and nurtures diversity–we will not tolerate legally imposed sectarian judgments, human rights violations, or discrimination in any form.
