To My Secularist Friends - Try Some Introspection!

Michael Barone, in a discussion of the global warming fanatics corrupting science, has the most insightful explanation of secularism that I have ever seen. Are the elements he points out as "religious like" being used by you to fill the void left by dropping "religion" from your life? (By "religion" I do not necessarily mean organized, just belief in a power greater than us!).

"The secular religion of global warming has all the elements of a religious faith: original sin (we are polluting the planet), ritual (separate your waste for recycling), redemption (renounce economic growth) and the sale of indulgences (carbon offsets). We are told that we must have faith (all argument must end, as Al Gore likes to say) and must persecute heretics (global warming skeptics are like Holocaust deniers, we are told)."

Think about it!
