The Morning Rant

Progressivism Is A Religion, Part LXXVI

The people who live across the street from where the pastor of my church live have a sign on their front lawn that says this:

In Our America:

Immigrants make America great
Health care for all
Diversity is celebrated
Love wins
Science is real
The constitution matters!

And it's not posted near the house, but rather out right up where the lawn meets the sidewalk. Its placement plus content ("In OUR America...") comes off as being belligerent and aggressive, as if they're just daring anyone to disagree with or contradict any of the sentiments expressed.

That was a few months ago. And then I started seeing it other places, the latest being outside of a church in downtown Denver during my Colorado road trip.

It reads like a mantra, something you would say to yourself over and over again to remind yourself what you believe. So not really like a mantra so much as it is a creed or confession of faith. Christianity has a rich history of creeds and confessions. Many books have been written about the various creeds and confessions of the Christian Church.

And this list is showing up in various forms all over the place, on signs, T-shirts, coffee cups, wall posters, etc.

These represent the articles of faith of the progressive religion. The list is introduced by "In our America" or "We believe" (which is very much like a traditional Christian creed. For example, the Apostle's Creed starts out "I believe in God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth...") Or even "In this house, we believe..." Yes, like most creeds and confessions, there are variations in the content. For example, some of them say "Love wins", others "Love is love" which appears to be far more common. "Kindness is everything" is on some, but on on all. "Water is life" also appears in some versions, and I'm guessing it's there to support clean water projects in Africa.

I especially like this one here, where the "Kindness is Everything" line appears just above a row of raised fists. Because nothing conveys the idea of kindness quite like the threat of a severe beating.

These slogans are quite popular. Even some misguided Christians are trying to get in on the act by coming up with their own version.

You really can't get more religious than this. Except for maybe blood sacrifices. Oh wait, progressivism has those, too.

I expect this list to grow in time. I've seen some that say "health care is a right" Also "Global warming is real." Perhaps we'll eventually see statements in support of ballot harvesting and court packing. Because there is no way to put the brakes on what progressives think are essential human rights. However much you give them, it will never be enough.

By enforcing a rigid and unyielding secularism, religion is not banished from the public sphere, it just shows up in different ways.

She was also nominated for an Oscar for The Bachelor Party (1957), in which she appeared with Don Murray, who also had a role in the new iteration of Twin Peaks at age 88. Ms. Jones, unfortunately passed in 1983 from colon cancer at age 53.
