  • Three Marks of Progressive-Lite Evangelicals

    For all their talk of evenhandedness, winsomeness, and giving others the benefit of the doubt, these ideals are tossed out the window the minute the discussion turns to matters that conservatives deeply care about and are willing to advocate for at the political level. As Christians, we should call out this double standard for what it is: hypocrisy. The term “white evangelical” has become purely pejorative in both secular and professedly-Christian news outlets. We live in contentious times. With virtually every major event or story comes a flood of news reports from both major news outlets and a seemingly endless...

    Has our culture made it more challenging to share the gospel with people? From one of our Ask R.C. events, R.C. Sproul considers the church’s task of evangelism in light of the growing influence of relativism.

    “Does calling for the genocide of Jews violate [your university’s] code of conduct or rules regarding bullying or harassment?”That was the question presented to the presidents of three elite universities—Harvard, MIT, and the University of Pennsylvania—in a recent congressional hearing. Each of the three women took turns answering the question but their responses were the same: it would depend on the circumstances and conduct. None of them was willing to directly say students calling for genocide of Jewish people would violate their school’s code of conduct.Most congressional hearings pass without much notice, but the backlash to this event was swift...

    “Barbarism is that which prevailed from the days of Adam down through ten generations to the time of Noah. It is called barbarism because of the fact that in those times men had no ruling authority or mutual accord, but every man was independent and a law unto himself after the dictates of his own will.” (John of Damascus, “The Fount of Knowledge,” cited in Political Apocalypse, Ellis Sandoz, p. 131)Pre-flood barbarism was an anarchy of selfishness in accord with Nietzsche’s moral philosophy, “You have your way, I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, it...

    The administration and board of regents at Concordia University Wisconsin has been deathly silent about this widely reported transgression against academic freedom.Today’s academic landscape is littered with the dry bones of academic freedom. This is true of my own religious university, Concordia University Wisconsin (CUW), from which I have been suspended and put under threat of termination for publishing an academic essay critiquing identity politics. As reported by The Federalist in March, soon after I published that essay, I was banned from campus and put on administrative leave. There I remain three months later, with no clear path to restoration...

    By being overly agreeable, people with a conservative disposition habitually make the grave mistake of conceding every seemingly harmless point up until an obviously terrible thing happens. In that moment, having conceded the terms of engagement, they have no recourse. The terms are laid out innocently, in the irresistible language of liberal universalism and personal kindness—nice people do not resist. Nice people won’t complain about the boot on their neck—or if they do, few have the temerity to really fight back. Transgender activists know this, which is why in the mid 2010s, the language of “preferred pronouns” entered the scene....

    Back in the day, the advocates of relativism wrapped themselves in the mantle of pluralism. The pretense is over, the new orthodoxy has arrived. Remember back just a few years ago, when academia and other societal elites told us that there were no moral absolutes. Every person could decide for themselves what is right and what is wrong. There were even entire school courses built around this premise. One popular program was called Values Clarification. Academia challenged the idea that education should center on the pursuit of truth since truth was relative and individualistic. I heard Francis Schaefer speak on...

    The Servant of God, Archbishop Fulton Sheen, wrote in 1948: “[Satan] will set up a counter church which will be the ape of the [Catholic] Church … It will have all the notes and characteristics of the Church, but in reverse and EMPTIED OF ITS DIVINE CONTENT.” “We are living in the days of the Apocalypse, the last days of our era. The two great forces – the Mystical Body of Christ and the Mystical Body of the anti-Christ – are beginning to draw battle lines for the catastrophic contest.” “The False prophet will have A RELIGION WITHOUT A CROSS....

    After many years of patient work, Satan has led the great majority of people in the Church and outside of the Church into relativism who has convinced this great majority of people that each person can decide the Truth for themselves without any reference to what God has revealed to us throughout human history (called Divine Revelation), well explained in the documents of the Catholic Church and well summarized in the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults (CCC, ed. 1992). Thus people no longer realize the great devastation that will happen afterwards due to neglecting and arrogantly changing the...

When experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. —George Santayana “The Life of Reason” Modern lefties refuse to listen to this central message of religion, that we fix the world by fixing ourselves, rather than fixing ourselves by remaking the world in our own broken image.—Daniel Greenfield “A Movement of Conspiracy Theories” The “progressives” (a misnomer if there ever was one)—I mean regressives—they want to regress society back to a feudal-like lifestyle, if not pre-Christian paganism, are masters of pointing fingers...

    I was the confessor for the last four years of a holy religious diocesan sister, SISTER PAOLA MEZZETTI, fourth oldest among six children from a religious family; her father was a fisherman at Lake Trasimeno. From the beginning of her consecrated life she offered her life for priests and bishops, knowing that there were many bishops in Masonry. She offered catechism classes in many parishes of the diocese of Perugia and cultivated a community (“Queen of Victories and Mother of Renewal”) around her, one of which became a priest. One day before she died a few from this group came...

    The following is an email that I recently sent to my bishop, the auxiliary bishop of Perugia, Italy. In a packed cathedral of Saint Lawrence, deacon and martyr, in Perugia, Sunday afternoon August 10, 2014, Mons. Paolo Giulietti was consecrated titular bishop of Termine Imerese and auxiliary of Perugia-Città della Pieve. http://www.umbria24.it/perugia-mons-paolo-giulietti-consacrato-vescovo-in-una-cattedrale-gremita/307907.html Five years later Mons.

    The Age of Religious Relativism Pope Francis is contributing to it Pope Francis is making his flirtations with religious relativism more and more explicit. During his trip to the United Arab Emirates this week, Pope Francis signed a joint declaration with his Islamic hosts on "human fraternity." It contained a statement his predecessors would have found shocking: "The pluralism and the diversity of religions, colour, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings." His predecessors would have called that an endorsement of false religions, an endorsement made worse by enlisting God's...

    They can sense it. They can feel it. Something is seriously wrong in our civilization, and many people know it. This is why despite the relatively good economic times, most Americans polled say our country is on the “wrong track.” Yet many are like a gravely ill man who knows he’s not well but can’t precisely identify his ailment. Most often, Americans have only a vague sense of cultural malaise, or they “self-diagnose” wrongly. Years ago I had a brief “state of the nation” discussion with a very fine, older country gentleman. While no philosopher, he did offer the following...

    In 1903, during America’s darkest period of hate, W. E. B. Du Bois heartbreakingly affirmed his intellectual affinity with Western civilization. “I sit with Shakespeare and he winces not. Across the color line I move arm in arm with Balzac and Dumas,” Du Bois wrote in “The Souls of Black Folk.” “I summon Aristotle and Aurelius and what soul I will, and they come all graciously with no scorn nor condescension.” Half a century earlier, Frederick Douglass had paid tribute to the 18th-century British orators whom, at age 12, he had discovered in a collection of political speeches. “Every opportunity...

    I sure hope nobody has discovered the lifeless body of Frank Oz’s career in a ditch somewhere. The voice/creator/puppeteer of Yoda stepped forward earlier this week to boldly state, “Crazy, progressivism is.” And that usually means a fatwa of sorts is put out for the one who refuses to drink the woke Kool-Aid.More specifically, Oz came to the defense of Bert and Ernie, characters whom he also breathed life into, by taking issue with a writer of Sesame Street who said the two longtime buddies were in, in fact, gay. Except: “They’re not, of course,” Oz tweeted.“But why that question?...

    Our diversity is our greatest strength. After playing clips of Democratic politicians reciting that truth of modern liberalism, Tucker Carlson asked, "How, precisely, is diversity our strength? Since you've made this our new national motto, please be specific." Reaction to Carlson's question, with some declaring him a racist for having raised it, suggests that what we are dealing with here is not a demonstrable truth but a creed not subject to debate. Yet the question remains valid: Where is the scientific, historic or empirical evidence that the greater the racial, ethnic, cultural and religious diversity of a nation, the stronger...
