The problem with “robust and confessional dogmatism” in a postmodern world is this. There are only a limited number of options here, and all of them but one are variations of what Leithart identifies as “Christianity.” As he uses the word in his book Against Christianity, Christianity is a system, an ism — what this or that individual thinks, or what this or that voluntary group confesses. But the setting in which individuals do their thinking, or voluntary groups gather together, is a setting that is completely controlled by secular modernity. Modernity sets the terms, modernity makes the rules, modernity tells all of us kids in the class to stay in our seats and raise our hands when we want to talk. The law-order is the law-order of modernity. This is the structure of secular and liberal democracy, and every form of postmodernism which does not challenge this is a sham.
