Is it hypocritical that secular society constantly tries to make people feel bad about what they do, consume, and are not down with what is in now, yet still attack and accuse Religion of doing the same?

I don't necessarily agree with the premise.

I could be wrong but I don't believe that secularism, itself, instructs a morality.

Secularist persons may do so, but that's the result of them projecting their personal stances onto others, rather than the result of the nonexistent secular morality.

Religion, however, does instruct a morality.

(by "non-existent secular morality" I mean to say that a centralized concept of secular morality doesn't exist, at least as I understand it.)

It's not necessarily morality that I am referring to rather societal pressure and trends.

Could you provide an example?

Yes. It's run of the mill capitalism. To consider religion in the matter doesn't seem appropriate. Whether a society is religious or not, capitalism will always do the same.

Their secularism is their "religion."
