Were you liberal ?
Theres nothing wrong with it - in theory, I think Fr Rep people are liberal in the sense that they believe in live and let live.
A lot of lefties fret about such things as imbalance of wealth, pollution, racism, war etc. and funnily enough , in theory I agree with some of what they have to say.BUT, and this is a very important caveat, here we are, in this particular world, in this particular time, and it is easier and more practical to just roll your sleeves up and make the best of life.
What the left defines as social justice, I call narcissism, because it is narcissism to assume that your definition of justice is universal.
What the left calls compassion, I call codependency because it's codependent to use the power of government to assume/take what is other people's responsibility.
If spiritual growth is all about assuming 100% of one's personal responsibility; then the left, which does everything it can to take people's responsibility ( in the name of help); cannot be compatible with spiritual growth.
