The Catholic Church like mainline Protestants is divided between liberals and conservatives. The far left targeted religious institutions just as they did everything else. The only religious groups that are growing are orthodox Catholics, orthodox evangelicals, and Mormons and these, who used to be enemies, increasingly see eye to eye, even on theological questions. Even secular "moderns" are into a variety of mysticism and cults, including Marxism and environmentalism. It seems man needs faith in something. A religion founded on that "bank of nations and of ages" as Burke said is at least rooted in evolved wisdom and requires that one escape from the self absorption of our permanently adolescent population.
