When Progressives are in charge                            

                                    
Why “Progressives” Favor the State Over Society


The New York Times was abuzz March 5. The board of trustees of South Carolina’s Erskine College—a small, liberal arts college historically associated with the Presbyterian church—had issued a statement declaring that the school considered “all sexual activity outside the covenant of marriage [as] sinful and therefore ultimately destructive of the parties involved.” Not only did the trustees affirm what has been standard Christian belief and practice since … well, the beginning of Christianity, but they even stated:

“As a Christian academic community, and in light of our institutional mission, members of the Erskine community are expected to follow the teachings of scripture concerning matters of human sexuality and institutional decisions will be made in light of this position.”

How would the trustees’ statement, worried the Times, be perceived by some homosexual and lesbian members of the volleyball and lacrosse teams?

Enter the State. A religiously neutral state is regarded—at least by progressives—as a state that is axiologically agnostic: the state can have no moral values of its own. The state exists simply to facilitate the moral will of the individual.
What the Times did not worry about—indeed, did not even ask—was what vision of society underlay the self-styled “progressive” view?

Progressives generally perceive themselves as “socially conscious,” supposedly concerned with the “good of society” and the “commonweal.” The truth is: progressives really do not believe in society. They believe in the State.

Loud rhetoric about “social justice” and “concern for the community” notwithstanding, the progressives’ position has, at root, an impoverished view of society. That attenuated view of society, in turn, derives from their vision of moral values in the community, which one suspects is driven in large part by their commitments in the areas of life and sex.

But Rodge, this is so unfair.  What if I'm gay? 

So, what if you are?

But Rodge, are you saying that practicing homsexuals will be condemned to Hell?

I'm not God. If that's what you believe, then don't.  Sheesh.

Writing in Righteous Indignation, Breitbart noted that, “the left doesn’t win its battles in debate. It doesn’t have to. In the 21st century, media is everything. The left wins because it controls the narrative. The narrative is controlled by the media. The left is the media and narrative is everything.”

"..... institutional decisions will be made in light of this position.”

Uh.... Would that be the "missionary" position?

Erskine College! Ah well, it doesn't have anything to do with Carl Erskine, pitching ace for the Brooklyn Dodgers. Had my hopes up.

I was thinking Erskine Caldwell (God's Little Acre--- Tobacco Road), but NO connection to the name.
Caldwell attended but did not graduate from Erskine College.
