"The philosopher Hegel, the spiritual father of Marx, John Dewey, and almost all modern humanists, saw the state as god walking on earth. The humanist is a very dedicated and religious man: he cannot be countered by lukewarmness. (Our Lord's indictment of the lukewarm is especially severe in Rev. 3:14-16.) The humanist's church, his lord and savoir, is the state. The salvation of man requires that all things be brought under the lordship of the state. Hence, the current moves against churches, Christian Schools, and Christian organizations  is a religious move, designed to further the humanistic salvation of man and society."
