We like our new words, even if they're nonsensical or rarely used. :p

It's an oxymoron but then again it really isn't. "secular religion" would apply primarily to moralistic ideologues who draw their "authority" from something other than a theistic entity. I'd give examples of said groups but religions that draw their moral authority by other means are strictly political, as is calling them a religion. Just so, that's the type of thing "secular religion" would apply to.

People whose ideological underpinnings fall into all of the trappings of an organized religion, such as having an original sin concept, a form of indulgences and contrition that they seek to impose, but who aren't religious in a theistic sense despite espousing every other hallmark of a traditional religious dogma in spite of that lack of theism within their beliefs.

@Philosophus Vagus, thank you for your explanation. I think it is an oxymoron for people to just find out the word, but later people might think differently. I agree with you on that.:smile:

@Philosophus Vagus, I cannot be a specific or I will surely get trouble here; the cult of personality or ideology. You are my friend or my enemy attitude. Am I correct?

Kinda like personality cults and the state\political party is always right. These things tend to have rigid beliefs and a dogma which people follow as if it were the word of God. If you criticise it or simply don't adhere to this dogma, you're part of the problem, the enemy, regardless of your actual beliefs. Well, I'm guessing it's like that.

That is a succinct way to generalize it so as not to break any rules. You know, kupotepo, there are times I think you do that on purpose, play into the second language choppiness paradigm to get away with insinuating things that I'd get into trouble for saying with my clear-spoken directness.

And if I'm wrong, well, you've clearly got a thirst for knowledge and expanding your horizons at the very least, which I've merely mistaken for shrewd dissemination. So my compliments regardless, I always enjoy your input here.

Man. A historic 130 year old church nearby had all of its windows broken out with bricks last night. Such a shame, it wasn't generic stained glass patterns either but had beautifully crafted murals depicting various parts of the gospels.
