Those so desperate to hold on to the Obama legacy fail to realize that his fascist policies (which robbed working people of their right to the free exercise of their religious beliefs, for starters) are not natural to nor viable in a free society. The liberal agenda, having been exposed as an empty headed attempt to claw power from the people, has been soundly rejected. Instead of whining and whimpering, perhaps those who voted for Secretary Clinton might do well to perform a collective examination of conscience to purge themselves of their adolescent rage so they can begin to be of real benefit to society and the common good.
The media is in overdrive trying to pin the label of fascism on right wing politicians. They, of course, are the real fascists. For starters, they have enabled a dismantling of culture by drowning out the voice of reason and by marginalizing free speech, especially religious speech. Meanwhile, the media are blind to the threat that certain rabidly irrational ideologies pose to civil society, not the least of which are various forms of Islamist militancy that, for one, deny women basic human rights. Far more dangerous to inalienable rights in the West, however and for the moment, is militant secularism, typically the religion of the relativist and liberal extremist who says and does little other than demonize anyone who disagrees with their inhuman liberal agenda which is by its very nature pro-abortion, anti-religion, pro-euthanasia and anarchic.
Liberal religionists in the Church apply the same tactics as their secular brethren against anyone who suggests that the Holy Eucharist may not be given to serial adulterers or anyone living in mortal sin. Sadly, the limp thinking typical among so-called (c)atholic progressives which tolerates obstinacy—which in effect blesses sinful behaviour—reaches to the very top of the hierarchy. Saint Paul's admonitions to embrace virtue (for the sake of one's salvation in Christ) are conveniently absent from the vocabulary of progressives.
The Liturgy is something we receive (and not re-manufacture week to week, or day to day). Jesus, being the principal, and for that matter the principle or canon against whom all our worship is measured, we are not permitted to deviate from the pattern guided by the Holy Spirit, the pattern enfleshed in the liturgical norms which help preserve authentic worship of Almighty God. Sadly, those norms (and the very need for norms and nuanced rubrics) have been rendered obsolete, at least to the thinking of the "progressive". Thus, many liturgies display more a sense of anarchy than a cohesion which mirrors the theological and ecclesial unity of the Body of Christ.
Faithful Catholics must zealously claim back the Liturgy for Christ. As long as Catholics think that the Liturgy may be made into whatever Father Celebrity or his cheeky music director or the "liturgist" imagines, faithful Catholics will be robbed of the opportunity to worship God in spirit and in truth.
