We killed god. But our civilization is so unconsciously steeped in Judeo-Christianity, our secular replacement for it was inescapably tainted by it. Here's what has been hammered into your head ever since you were old enough for rote learning -An irrational, non-scientific belief (faith) in the equality of all human beings. There are no real differences between the sexes or races except what has been shaped by 'culture' -Due to unspeakable evils of the past, a certain segment of the population and their future progeny carry the sin of privilege (original sin) -The only way to redeem yourself is to admit your privilege and cleanse yourself of your inherited sin via mass wealth redistribution and pathological altruism (salvation) -Since everyone is the same..everyone can be perfected. Utopia and heaven on earth is possible if all just cede their autonomy to the modern clergy (government, media, academia) -Any deviation from the above results in witch hunts, career sabotage and accusations of racism/homophobia/misogyny (heretic) Liberal atheists have not thrown off the shackles of religion. They are practicing Christianity under a new guise. Modern liberal democracy is the logical endpoint of protestant Christianity.
