The worst of modern secular myths

Dan Siedell, ​“Modern Art” (emphasis mine):

Art’s kinship to religion is instructive. The artifacts of a particular religion are intended only for those who practice that religion. The Bible, for example, is written by believers for believers. The idea that ​“Art” must speak directly and clearly to the uninterested, distracted, and impatient public is the worst of modern secular myths, yet one which most Christian cultural warriors who denigrate ​“Modern Art” nonetheless embrace without reservation.
