A couple of days ago, I wrote about the non-neutrality of secularism. I don’t think this is a controversial claim, but if anyone needs convincing…
It’s been in the news lately that Amazon, though it carries all sorts of obscenely objectionable material, has decided certain books that oppose aspects of the sexual revolution are simply out of bounds. An apt example of the thinness of secularism’s commitment to neutrality.
But this is only an early stage in the effort to regulate the marketplace of ideas. Big tech censorship is a matter of private enterprise. Parts of Europe are more advanced. In the UK, you can face charges for telling the truth about a “transgender” person’s identity. And, most recently, in Finland, the police are investigating a politician who cited the Bible’s condemnation of homosexuality.
Ostensibly neutral secularism is just the camouflage worn in the West by anti-Christian ideologies.
