Colucci: New religion is changing outcome of all levels of policy

Lamont Colucci, associate professor and chair of politics and government and interim director of the Center for Politics and the People at Ripon College, published an opinion editorial in The Washington Times titled “Red Puritanism.”

Colucci’s editorial describes “a new religion (that) has swept the western world and is changing the outcome of all levels of policy.”

Likening it to “Hollywood and the media,” Colucci claims that “This is a religion like no other as it denies the existence of God or relegates Him to an inconsequential shadow of ambiguity; its mantra is ‘I am spiritual, but not religious.’”

According to Colucci, “There are no immutable goals except ending white privilege, destruction of conservatism, the cult of victimization, a reduction of American military power and the glorification of anything that shocks.”
