If you do not believe in the Gods, then you cannot claim to hold anything sacred.

From Galina Krasskova:

if you do not believe in Gods, then fundamentally you cannot be said to hold anything “sacred.” It’s simple linguistics.

The word ‘sacred’, from the Latin ‘sacer’ specifically means ‘belonging to the Gods.’ No Gods; nothing sacred. It’s bad enough he wants to remove the Gods from Paganism, but now from vocabulary words too? Atheist, please.

In case Latin is too high brow for him (though he claims to be an attorney, so I would think this type of linguistic analysis would not be above his pay grade), Collins English Dictionary defines it as exclusively devoted to a deity or to some religious ceremony or use; holy; consecrated.

I honestly cannot get why this is so hard for people to understand.  Pick up a dictionary.  Words have meaning.  When you start changing meanings willy-nilly, civilization starts to collapse.  We are the defenders of civilization — polytheist civilization!
