Obama: high priest of the new religion

Obama secured the vote of people most like him: secular humanists with just a dash of fluffy spiritual patois. Not really a story of earth shattering proportions, but it is a sign of the times.

From NPR: Add This Group To Obama's Winning Coalition: 'Religiously Unaffiliated'.

Yeah. Big surprise. The burgeoning, "I'm spiritual, but not religious" trend is simply a manifestation of our decadent, vulgar culture: reject traditional morality rooted in reason and embrace vague, irrational concepts of the spiritual, but only to the extent that it doesn't limit MY freedom to do whatever the hell I want. Identify yourself as a Christian, but then define for yourself what being Christian means. This can only lead to defining, on your own, who God is, a shocking demonstration of pride and blasphemy.

The truth is, they have made themselves gods.
