Not exactly. The 'aggressive secularism' he talked about doesn't exist over here, people just don't care about religion as much as they used too (that should have been apparent by the lack of people who attended the mass, considering it's not happened here for decades). As usual the christian mentality is to play the victim card, as if their beliefs are being attacked by some sort of collective group/force. When like I say in reality, it's just that less and less people care.
Christians feel the need to be the most dominant force in every particular place where their religion is considered a 'state religion'. Whilst I don't think he was promoting aggressive christianity, I think he was implying that there needs to be an equal force on the side of christianity to preserve their presence in society, simply based on the notion that 'it's traditional' rather than accepting that their beliefs are becoming less and less relevant in progressive societies.
