    Question huff the huffers

    Hi everyone

    Please help, I can't understand the meaning of the following phrase:

    "huff the huffers"

    in

    "If everything should be assessed in terms of humanity, huff the huffers, then the gods are no longer at the center of people’s concerns."

    Is it idioms?

    As far as I know, it is not an idiom. After a dictionary trip, I think it means "bully the bullies".

    It comes from a book called Atheism for Dummies. I have no idea what it's supposed to mean.
