However, it is not new and it is not a religion. In the perceived absence of any supernatural being "up there" watching over us, many more people now believe that we must get to know and love ourselves and be in touch with our feelings, in order to watch over each other. Incidentally, this search is almost a compulsive one for anyone, like Diana, who has lacked love or been otherwise damaged in childhood.
I don't know why Jack O'Sullivan wants to give the name New Protestantism to this secular set of values. It already has a name - humanism.
