The Secular Version of “The Great Desecration”
I've been trying to think of an appropriate secular analogy to P. Z. Myers's Great Desecration. I think I've figured out a possible analogy. It is that blasphemy against The State: destroying currency (earlier discussed here). Remember, from the point of view of a secular leftist:
“The march of God in the world, that is what the state is.” — Georg Wilhelm Friedrich HegelThere is a difference between blaspheming the State and blaspheming the Church: The State really is able to burn you at the stake nowadays.
Disclaimer: I am not a believer in either religion under discussion (the Roman Catholic Church or Statism) so I might have misunderstood something.
