Its a bizarre paradox, but the people who most hate humans are humanists

It makes perfect sense from a biblical worldview, though.
The humanist wants to feel good about himself as a "good person", so he claims to care about humanity. But, since his ideology is godless, and therefore Satanic, he hates these little "images of God" running around polluting the earth.

I think its a little more pervasive than that. The Humanist faith (and it is a faith) has a basically idealistic view of Humanity. They believe that we can, as a species, pull ourselves up by our own bootlaces. Of course, this is in direct contradiction to the Christian viewpoint of Humans being basically flawed. Masterpieces (because we are made by God in His image) but marred by sin. We believe that only God's perfect love has any chance of perfecting us.

Objectively, it is clear which depiction of the Human condition is the more accurate - pick up any newspaper or watch any TV news report for ten mintues. The problem for Humanists is that people will insist on not living up to their unrealistic standards. It is hardly surprising that Humanists are angry all the time. It is also hardly surprising that they blame everyone else (particularly those reactionary theists) for the world's affairs "not being as they should be". After all, the alternative would be too terrible to think about - they might have to accept they were wrong and there really is a God who will ask for an accounting from them...
