With the torrent of pro-Atheism screeds in recent years, one would think that the clash between worldviews would be cast into sharp relief: At one hand, the naturalism of secularists, who hold that this life ends in oblivion, and on the other hand, the active-God theism of religious believers, who hold that this life ends only to begin another, more real, life in eternity. But alas, the chasm between these views is more obscured than ever. In False Neutrality: How Secularism Eclipses Faith, Albert Norton sets out to demonstrate why that is. Words get redefined in order to game the debate. The public square is continually scrubbed of theistic content, to make it more hospitable to atheistic content, even as the square itself inexorably expands. And most significantly, that which we call neutral is anything but. Secularism is thought to mean mere neutrality with regard to religion. As such, it is made the default and even required medium for public discourse. But as False Neutrality demonstrates, secularism is an identifiable collection of doctrinal beliefs that is hostile to religious doctrines, rather than being neutral concerning them. Secularism is given presumptive dominance, as a result of misguided faith in its neutrality. Read this book to understand what is really at stake.
