The historic roots of the Moral Majority are deftly described in a stanza from Curt Sytsma’s satiric poem, “A Humanist Manifesto”:
In every age, the bigot’s rage

Requires another focus,

Another devil forced on stage

By hatred’s hocus-pocus:

The devil used to be the Jew

And then it was the witches;

And then it was the Negroes who

Were digging in the ditches.

The devil once was colored pink

And labeled communistic;

Now, all at once, in just a blink,

The devil’s humanistic.

Taken From The Intro Of  “THE PHILOSOPHY OF HUMANISM ” .
