Karl Marx's irreverent view of religion as "the opiate of the masses" has gone mainstream. Influenced by Marx, secularists increasingly seek to marginalize faith by pushing it out of the public square.
The drive to make religion an exclusively private matter is now in the air we breathe. Even many Christians accept the secular worldview, unwittingly forcing God to the sidelines of our culture.
On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, biblical scholar, theologian, and author of the new book It is Right and Just Dr. Scott Hahn discusses:
- Why modern post-Christian societies are much more pagan than the ancient pagans
- How secularists dramatically exaggerate the abuses of religion--and turn a blind eye to the mass-scale atrocities perpetrated by atheistic political philosophies
- Why the unconstrained pursuit of pleasure has not led to joy
- Why 40 Days for Life is more important now than ever
