[full disclosure - not catholic but Christian by the grace of God]

I'm thinking of some modern “strange gods”:

Green movement - Mother earth, environmentalism, etc
Humanism - evolution, belief in science above miracles
Cult of death - abortion, euthanasia, right to die movement
Cult of personality - worship (as in, first thoughts or concerns of the heart) of public figures including, movie stars, sports heroes, TV personalities, the wealthy and famous
Cult of money - belief that money will make you a better person or your life meaningful, love of money above love of God or his children

just saying ....

I think you hit some big ones; I might as well throw some little idols in for completion:

Coffee, chocolate, cigarettes etc., to much of ANY good thing, and Me, Myself and I.
