Progressives & Orthodoxy
Great piece in the CSM by a Muslim who refuses to accept the "moderate Muslim" label and surrender the "orthodoxy" label to Al Qaeda and the Taliban. Juxtapose that insight next to Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, RFK daughter and former Lt. Gov. of MD who's joined the Catholics-Misrepresenting-Catholicism industry. Heard her on C-Span the other night chanting the banal litanies of "progressive Christianity." If she had half a brain about ancient religions, she'd understand with Ms. Khalid that if you don't confront the primacy of orthodoxy, your hemming and hawing is just boring dinner theater.
