Open-minded liberals and progressives

The idea that a Roman Catholic bishop should expect congruence with Roman Catholic teaching and behavior from the people --mainly women, of course-- who are paid to teach Roman Catholicism in Roman Catholic schools is...disturbing.

And speaking of "strict morality codes", ever run into a nest of progressives who did not constantly ride herd on every possible departure from Approved Speech, Thought and Attitude? And the secular Kosher laws for Proper Disposal of Waste is not a "strict morality code" enforced by the State?

Once the Party of Progress decides in an issue, no further discussion, much less thinking, is allowed. Difference become H8. The notion that progressives are non-dogmatic and open-minded is utterly wrong. Laughably so.

Now that, for instance, gay marriage has been elevated to sacrosanct status and "transphobia" is a newly discovered Crime Against Humanity, will you find any open-minded critical thinker among the progressive who would dare to stop and say, "Let's assess this again. Is there anything other than Pure Progress and Virtue involved in our positions and policies? Any down sides? At all?"

Ain't never gonna happen.

Many people think that the current Archbishop of Chicago was being a drama queen when he said, "I will die in my bed. My successor will die in prison. And his successor will die a martyr in the public square."

Like any cancer, once Progress becomes more established --and now has complete hegemony, and in San Francisco, monopoly-- it becomes more, not less, invasive and virulent. Like cancer, it never stops until it has killed its host.
