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