Heresy Often Tends to Mutate Into Its Opposite

Radical Feminism (not all feminism) typically winds up struggling to de-feminize women. Secular liberation movements end in chains for massive portions of the population. Soviets who promised bread, peace and land wound up starving their citizens, plunging into war, and taking all their land.

And lefties who start out claiming that the right to privacy trumps the law of God end by saying the State has the right to pry into everybody’s sexual orientation.

    Secular humanism always turns out the same results: misery, poverty, and the devastation of the society and the individual.

    Exactly.  Did you notice that the same liberals who claimed that the Constitution demanded “Separation of Church and State,” and so Catholic schools couldn’t get any government aid, are now demanding that the government force Catholic hospitals to subsidize abortion-inducing drugs?
    By the way, Thomas Jefferson assured the Ursuline nuns in New Orleans that their school would get federal aid because it served a secular purpose.  It wasn’t until after he died that the notion that the government should enforce “non-sectarianism” in schools arose.
