The archbishop of San Francisco has warned of the use of social media to promote a “new kind of fundamentalism” hostile to religious freedom, in an Aug. 12 op-ed.
Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco, together with the president of the Christian group Focus on the Family, Jim Daly, authored an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal on Thursday on “Social Media’s Threat to Religious Freedom.”
They warned that current efforts to promote a liberalization of sexual mores are using social media in a coercive manner, not a tolerant manner.
“Today’s sexual politics function as a new kind of fundamentalism, one that presents a deep problem to a diverse and democratic society,” they stated, noting that “social media enables the new fundamentalism, enforced by the mysterious rules of Big Tech’s quasimonopoly.”
