8th January 2014

“Progressive religion let us down. As the follies of the [US] religious right multiplied, it was the non-believers who started to fight back. Progressive religion sat on the sidelines and watched things decay, and were extremely reluctant to take a stance against their right wing brothers in Christ.”

    Unfortunately, we can’t blame this one on the religion part of “Progressive religion”. This was a failure of nerve on the part of the progressive movement, as the devil’s bargain was struck between St. Ronnie of Reagan, and his personal Pope, Jerry Falwell. Had the progressives of the time sounded the alarm rather than bowing their heads in shame, we might have prevented the disaster that the following 34 years have brought us.
