PC Priests

At View From the Right, folks are surprised to see an Orthodox priest criticizing anyone who opposes the Ground Zero Mosque. No one should be surprised that even conservative faiths fail to produce conservative people. According to the GSS, only 28.6 percent of Orthodox Christians say they are conservative, compared to 34.1 percent of all Americans. This from a church that officially believes that women should not be allowed behind the iconostatis; that they should wear scarves in the sanctuary; and that women should wait 40 days after giving birth before re-entering the sanctuary.

Mainline churches are accomplices in the area of politics. Roman Catholics are as liberal as non-Catholics. Priests take their cues from the New York Times, not God. It's shameful.

My feeling is that in The West, now, *all* large, or 'successful', or well-funded, or growing organizations and institutions are corrupted with liberalism/ PC - especially among their leadership.

There are no exceptions.

That is just a fact of our times: a characteristic of our times.

Religious reactionaries are on their own either as individuals, or - if lucky - in small, tenuous groups.

"women should wait 40 days after giving birth before re-entering the sanctuary."


The last thing a tired new mom needs is someone guilting her into doing one more outside activity. At least they respect the woman enough to let her have a few weeks at home tending to her God given responsibilities. There is no great "liberation" in being expected to drag herself from her child bed to engage in some public activity.
