The following is a letter to the editor that I read this morning in the Augusta Chronicle. It is an apologetic for secular morality as superior to our Judeo-Christian morality.
The way this so-called morality is presented would certainly resonate with American ideals and sensibilities and I posit as the reason for its success in the secular world.
As our American society and culture becomes more and more secular, I wonder how we can help our Catholics to view it with a critical mind and to remain faithful to our religious morality.
We should not demonize, however, the word secularism. But it is interesting how secularism has a counterpart to religion in many different areas. There are benign secular counterparts to Christmas and Easter and now to Christian morality.
Does this letter to the editor capture the reason why secular morality is gaining so much ground in the USA and elsewhere?
