In his commentary, Mr. Fazio argued that religion is an inevitable influence in modern society.  According to Mr. Fazio, secular humanists should be willing to “sit at the table with their devout brethren,” observing that elitism and arrogance will convert few to the side of the secular humanists.  Fazio argued that theists and secular humanists can work harmoniously together, provided that each group gains empathy and exhibits the humility to listen to one another. 


Citing Mr. Fazio’s arguments as “well stated”, Charles Pervo, President of the Northeastern Ohio Chapter, added,” We should all keep his message in mind.”
