I tried to read one of Harris's books but had to put it down when he started arguing for placing all christians (or even all religious people, I don't remember exactly) in internment camps.

The thinking humanists of days gone by like Margaret Sanger supported sterilization. Today's humanists are much more religious, in that they derive their views from unquestionable doctrines of political correctness, and much more attracted to policies that deliver immediate emotional gratification (feeding hungry mouths) rather than delivering long-term returns on investment (eugenics).
