POSTMODERN DEMOCRATIC SECULARISM IS IN FACT, A RELIGION.
The fact that we WANT equality to be true, and diversity to be a good, and equality of outcome, is very different from whether it’s possible. Postmodernism has replaced the promise of eternal life with the promise of equality. Neither of which are any more possible than the other.

We can also argue that scientism is a religion, but that’s too much for this forum. 🙂
