The Dictatorship of Democracy
Author: Grzegorz Kucharczyk
Not content to squeeze the Church and Christianity out of public life, militant secularism is now claiming a position of dominance by persecuting those who refuse to toe the prevailing line of “progress and modernity.” Thus secularism is taking on all the characteristics of a religion.
Shortly after the fall of Russian communism in 1989, in his encyclical Centessimus annus, Pope John Paul II warned the former communist bloc countries that, “democracy without values easily turns into open or thinly disguised totalitarianism.” He would renew these warnings in subsequent magisterial pronouncements. The current successor of St. Peter, Pope Benedict XVI, has likewise spoken out publically against the “dictatorship of relativism” threatening the world.
From the events unfolding before our eyes in the so-called civilized West, we can state that the warnings of the popes have become fact. Not content to squeeze the Church and Christianity out of public life, militant secularism is now claiming a position of dominance by persecuting those who refuse to toe the prevailing line of “progress and modernity.” Thus secularism is taking on all the characteristics of a religion, or pseudo-religion—and a militant one at that. It has its own canonical texts (take only the programmatic pronouncements of the leading representatives of the New Left, the postmodernists, and the neo-Marxists), its own apostles (the liberal media, which also serve as a Liberal Inquisition), its own icons (e.g. Barak Obama), and its own faithful adherents (“the enlightened electorate based in the large urban centers”).
