Secular dogma

In case you still can’t figure out how purely secular dogma can be every bit as repressive and bizarre as religious dogma, here’s what the good Chinese atheists are up to now:

Offending content included “wronged spirits and violent ghosts, monsters, demons, and other inhuman portrayals, strange and supernatural storytelling for the sole purpose of seeking terror and horror,” the administration said. The new guidelines aim to “control and cleanse the negative effect these items have on society, and to prevent horror, violent, cruel publications from entering the market through official channels and to protect adolescents’ psychological health.”

Ironically, the current scientific evidence suggests that banning godlessness would be justified as harmful to one’s psychological health.
