Definition of fetishism:
- idolatry (part of speech: noun)
- sectarianism (part of speech: noun)
It is further supposed that idolatry, properly so called, belongs to Fetishism only, and not at all to Polytheism, for this singular, but not very conclusive reason, among others, that if Polytheism be justly chargeable with idolatry because it recognizes many wills superior to Nature and having power over it, Catholicism would be equally liable to the same charge in respect of the homage which it renders to saints and angels!- "Modern Atheism under its forms of Pantheism, Materialism, Secularism, Development, and Natural Laws", James Buchanan.
