Clerical fascism

From Metapedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Clerical fascism (also clero-fascism or clerico-fascism) are claimed ideologies combining fascism (broad sense) and clericalism (ideologies supporting the power of religious clerics).

Leftist Wikipedia lists many alleged examples, including pro-Hindu and pro-Islam movements.

Some critics have rejected many or all alleged examples of clerical fascist regimes, arguing that an entire fascist regime does not become "clerical" if some elements of a clergy support it. Other critics have argued that fascism is fundamentally secular.
