Rejection of Secularism, Both Soviet and Western European Styles

Middle Europe Rises

One has to be intrigued by developments in Middle Europe.  Here are a bunch of countries who know first hand what the fruits of secularism taste like.  Countries like Poland, Hungary, and Romania lived under secularist oppression for decades.  Back then it was called Communism. 

Regrettably it seems that most folk in the West have not yet clicked to the indisputable truth that Communism, as experienced in the Soviet Union and its "satellite" states, was one of the most perfected secularist countries ever seen in human history.  But so bad was its record and its outcomes that even Vlad the Impaler, leader of today's Russian Federation has discarded secularism to the point where he acknowledges the former Christian influence and guidance of the "Russias", up until another Vlad, Vladimir Ilyich Lenin seized control in 1917. 

In a similar manner, Middle Europe has been turning back to its Christian past.  Its chief opposition to this development has been--irony of ironies--the now secularist West, particularly Western Europe. 

Victor Orban, Prime Minister of Hungary, is very much aware of what seems to be taking place throughout Middle Europe.  The secularist West, on the other hand, cannot comprehend, much less accept it. Here is Orban:

Hungary’s Viktor Orbán has told supporters he will use his third consecutive election victory as an opportunity to advance into a “new era”, with Central Europe becoming a bastion of Christian culture and nation-state democracy as multicultural globalism turns liberal democracies into “liberal non-democracies”.

Speaking at an event in the predominantly ethnic Hungarian region of Székely Land in Romania, the Fidesz leader said he was looking forward to the end of the present European Commission led by Jean-Claude Juncker, and to elections to the European Parliament in 2019 — which he predicts will for the first time revolve around one common European issue: mass migration.

Orbán said these elections would provide an opportunity to block “the great goal of transforming Europe and moving it towards a post-Christian and post-national era” and hand a heavy defeat to “the elite of ’68” and their liberal democratic system. “In European politics it is the turn of the anti-communist generation, which has Christian convictions and commitment to the nation,” he declared.    [Alex Griswold, Breitbart London.

Orban sees that secularism in Western Europe is already taking new forms and shapes which are turning Europe back to the horrors of pure secularism. 
“The situation in the West is that there is liberalism, but there is no democracy… Censorship and restrictions on freedom of speech have become general phenomena,” he observed.
And here is the crunch which is causing the illuminati in the West to turn blue with apoplexy:
Prime Minister Orbán affirmed his own commitment to what he has repeatedly described — to the horror of mainstream media commentators — as “illiberal” democracy, which unashamedly promotes national identity, rejects mass migration, and embraces the “Christian foundations” of Western civilisation.

“In today’s open-society Europe there are no borders; European people can be readily replaced with immigrants; the family has been transformed into an optional, fluid form of cohabitation; the nation, national identity and national pride are seen as negative and obsolete notions… In fact, in liberal Europe being European means nothing at all: it has no direction, and it is simply form devoid of content,” he argued — and declared that Central Europe would instead adopt “Christian democracy” as its model.

Christian democratic politics means that the ways of life springing from Christian culture must be protected… These include human dignity, the family and the nation – because Christianity does not seek to attain universality through the abolition of nations, but through the preservation of nations.”  [Emphasis, ours.]
