Modernism is just rationalized promiscuity, continued

The Cybernetics of Liberalism

Every single one of the liberal heresies justifies sexual libertinism. Even scholarly issues like the dating of the four Gospels has a sexual payoff, as you will find if you talk long enough with liberal theologians. If the Gospels are not eyewitness accounts of Christ’s actual words, but the “consensus” of the “early Christian community,” then they are negotiable; the rod of their divine authority is broken. Authority over what? What rankles the liberal? Almost every major issue dividing the Church today between the orthodox and the liberals is about sexual morality: abortion, contraception, homosexuality, divorce, feminism, “inclusive language,” priestesses. The liberal drive is always to break some link in the iron chain that binds our sexual activity to our God.
