Thank you for your responses. We disagree on the French Enlightenment and Abrahamic religions but understand the value of the Enlightenment and the West more generally. I do understand the arguments you make for the values expressed in Christianity, for example. Jordan Peterson makes what seems to be the strongest case for Christianity from a philosophical/psychological perspective in his Biblical lectures. He does not, however, address the authoritarianism and Christianity link nor the fact that much of the metaphysical and philosophical foundations of the West are pagan in origin.

Always great to discuss topics with an inquisitive person!
