Formerly the Thinking Catholic Strategic Center

Progressivism is, in reality, Regressivism. The opposite of progress in knowledge; the descent into the deepening insane swamp of unreality.
There is one and only one reality, and reality does not change. Human impressions change, perceptions change, viewpoints change and beliefs change, because ideas are always in a state of change. The way the human mind perceives reality changes, but, reality does not change.
The human mind and reality are two different things.
The center of reality is Truth, and He is God, and He does not change.
Whatever opposes reality is to be avoided, per 2 Cor 6:14-18 above.
Progressivism is always unreal, and anti-reality, and anti-Truth. And yet, having not kept apart from it, having not anathematized it from the beginning, Progressiveism has grown up among us, taken over, and Progressiveism now anathematizes us, and reality, and Truth.
Progressiveism is a path to cultural perdition.
We've been over this so many times over the years that we feel like we're flogging a dead horse; but no matter how many times it is repeated, the reality of it, the cultural threat of it must be hammered home in as many minds as possible, before "Progress" drives the whole world's cultural bus off the cliff and into the swamp.
To review, some previous writings on the "Progress" of Progressivism,
That is not all we have written warning of Progressivism, but it is representative enough. It shows what happens when we fail to separate from sin = untruth = unreality. First, in ourselves, then, in our house, then, in our neighborhood, then, in our nation.
If we would be a good People we must first be a True People. People of Truth, in all things.
But can we say that we stand in truth when we are not allowed to oppose such abominations as abortion and homosexuality and Communism and Islam in public, without being shouted down if not sued or jailed by American lawyers, judges, Mayors, Governors, Senators, Congressmen and past Presidents?
The very idea that homosexuality is now "normal" and "natural" and "born that way" and "made by God" and "Good" - is that Progress, or is that Regress? There is no real science behind it; there is only Scientism, which is a product of evil Progressivism.
Scientism is Democratically arrived-at, let's-pretend reality. A list of credentialed scientists who agree with an unproven hypothesis.
Such nonsensical Scientism has conquered much of America, certainly all of academic and elitist upper-class America.
Just call Ellen DeGeneres a sexual deviate and pervert in some public arena, and see what happens next. Go ahead; I dare you.
It won't matter that Ellen DeGeneres actually is a sexual deviate and a pervert; the only thing that will matter is that you had the unmitigated gall to walk out there and say it.
You will be anathematized.
Evil now anathematizes good.
But note this well: Reality Has Not Changed.
It's the same thing with anyone publicly opposing climate-change as utter nonsense. there is not one shred of actual science supporting it, and yet, thundering herds of politically motivated credentialed scientists will sign a petition damning honest opponents as "Science-Deniers".
Speak from any public podium against abortion, and you may be physically attacked.
Pope Francis and the USCCB always come down on the side of Progressivism. What does that tell us about the state of the Church?
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.
Print, sign and send The Letter, and make our Church Catholic again.
Get behind President Trump, and make America Constitutional again.
With fear and trembling, work out your salvation--Phil 2:12

Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Get in the fight! Engage!
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
