President James E. Faust has noted that in contrast to earlier, God-fearing times' a new civil religion seems to be developing in America. He said The civil religion I refer to is a secular religion.

It feels strange. If this trend continues, non-belief will be more honored than belief. While all beliefs must be protected, are atheism, agnosticism, cynicism, and moral relativism to be more safeguarded and valued than Christianity, Judaism, and the tenets of Islam, which hold that there is a Supreme Being and that mortals are accountable to him If so, this would, in my opinion, place America in great moral jeopardy.
