    The new religion, Red Puritanism.

    By Lamont Colucci - - Monday, January 5, 2015

    A new religion has swept the western world and is changing the outcome of all levels of policy. This is a religion like no other as it denies the existence of God or relegates Him to an inconsequential shadow of ambiguity; its mantra is “I am spiritual, but not religious.”

    The root of the word “religion” in Latin means “to rebind.” This new religion requires its adherents to be bound by a set of rules and behaviors; it requires them to evangelize and recruit, and it punishes those who deviate or reject its tenets. This new faith could be called “Red Puritanism.”

    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare

    Not all things are fodder for the Social Lounge. Generic arguments (pro or con) of organized religion is one that has little (no?) benefit to appearing on the pages of OCDO and strays too far from the intent of this site.
