Liberal theologian William Ellery Channing once observed, The cry has been that when war is declared, all opposition should be hushed. A sentiment more unworthy of a free country could hardly be propagated.
War has indeed been declared. Channings contemporary liberal counterparts have declared a war for our culture. But while Channing presumably held to the oft-bandied supposition that dissent is the highest form of patriotism, todays secular-progressive has no choice but to endeavor that all opposition should be hushed.
Liberals recognize that when arguing on the merits, they cannot prevail. Not only are their morally relative, redistributionist philosophies untenable and utopian, but they read the same polls demonstrating that reasonable people reject their ideas outright. In fact, Americans identify as conservative over liberal by a two-to-one margin. Even those who call themselves moderate lean conservative.
It makes sense. The progressive movement wars against natural law, pushes perpetually failed secular-socialist policies and places above constitutionally safeguarded individual liberty thickheaded tenets of postmodern political correctness. Liberal elites demand tolerance for all things perverse and find intolerable all things righteous.
