"the demon in liberalism, as a political ideology, or political idol of our time..."

"Idol" is a good word to use when you consider the attacks on Christianity and Christian values that go hand-in-glove with this secular agenda. The progressive values it is pushing are radical and very new... after all this ideology as it relates to societal change has only been around for a few decades. To be honest I think a large percentage of the public go along because taking a stance in opposition is hard. I spoke a while back to an Irish woman who told me she voted to support gay marriage. When I asked her if that was really a part of her traditional Catholic belief system, she said "No, but I don't want the EU to hate us or lose tourist dollars."
