WHY LIBERALS CAN’T BE HYPOCRITES [Michael Novak]
In order to be a hypocrite, you have to hold to standards higher than your own behavior. Standards in whose light you are, by your own choice, a sinner, in need of repentance and change of life.
The first prayer at the Catholic Mass is the “I confess to Almighty God that I have sinned…” As altar boys, we used to say, “Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa” – Through my own fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault.
Someone wrote a few years back that now that socialism is dead as an economic system, the center of liberal values has migrated to sex and gender. Being a liberal means having a right to do anything that you want sexually anywhere, anytime, and with anybody. Thus, there is no way for liberals to be hypocritical about sex. Except by being chaste.
