Why Secularism Leads to Bullying
Without religion, there can be no objective base for morality.
Without an objective base, morality is relative.
If morality is relative, than all moral perspectives are equal.
If all moral perspectives are equal, the only way to settle a conflict in perspectives is through a contest of power.
If power contests decide morality, than strength becomes equated with moral rightness, or « Might makes right »
Therefore, secularism creates bullying.
In such a world, bullying is not immoral, but the natural process by which the strong weed out the weak and assert the rightness of their perspective. If anything, it would be immoral to step in, unless it is on the grounds of having more power of one sort or another.
In such a world, it is absolutely impossible to say, « Bullying is wrong » because such a statement requires some sense of objective, unmoving morality. And secularism cannot produce that.
I am not saying that secularism is the only factor in bullying. But we must pay attention. Culture is teaching our kids that all morality is relative. Your perspective is yours, mine is mine. This flows out of the secular worldview. But where is this thinking taking us? As I demonstrated above, if there are no moral absolutes, then might will make right in one form or another.
Do we want our grand-children growing up in a world where it is impossible to appeal to a Higher Power, to say, « This is Wrong! »
We are swiftly moving in the direction where right and wrong no longer make any real sense, and the only true measure of morality is the force of pure power.
That is not a safe place for anyone but the strong.
