Such is the nature of the radical secularists that they are managing to turn previous virtues into today’s vices. And in the process they have unleashed a new Inquisition. In a perfect illustration of the prophet Isaiah’s warning, the new social engineers are turning our world upside down.
This is what Yahweh said through Isaiah two and a half millennia ago: “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter” (5:20 ). This describes to a T what we are experiencing in the West today.
I was going to say “post-Christian West”, but a more accurate term would be “anti-Christian West”. All over the Western world there is a war going on against the very values and ideals which made the West great in the first place. Examples of this are easy to come by.
