    I recently read a book that mentioned the thought of liberalism as a sin—-yes it was Catholic, but mentioned that its start was in the Protestant reformation. This gave people the freedom of private interpretation and ergo their own religion as they interpreted Biblical writings—-So just as our president uses executive orders to get around the constitution, it started with the free will of private interpretation!

      Well, the Church is like the rest of us. They threatened Galileo and kept him under house arrest until the end of his life, because the idea that the Earth orbited the Sun violated Biblical teaching at that time.

      But 400 years later, Catholicism proposes the Big Bang Theory (cosmological inflation, not sitcom) as a radical idea to support religious doctrine.

      We all change, all the time. By definition, change is not conservative.
