"One of the ironies, as some have observed, is that the secular project has itself become a religion, pursued with religious fervor. It is taking on all the trappings of a religion – including inquisitions and excommunication. Those who defy the creed risk a figurative burning at the stake – social, educational, and professional ostracism and exclusion waged through lawsuits and savage social media campaigns."

William Barr

    To the extent that secular humanism has ripped the fabric of the nation apart. For such a religion who waged inquisitions for blood and excommunication has instilled within the minds of youth the reprobate mindset to subvert the pillars our nation that it was founded upon.
