Joss Whedon will receive the 2009 Outstanding Lifetime Achievement Award in Cultural Humanism.
I never really knew Joss Whedon considered himself a Humanist but always enjoyed the humanistic values, morals and lessons portrayed in his TV shows and projects. I never got into Buffy, but Firefly was particularly important to me with a near-openly atheist lead character, Malcolm Reynolds. (“You’re welcome on my boat, preacher. God ain’t.”) And we all know how I feel about Dr. Horrible.
So, congratulations Mr. Whedon. Well deserved.
