found this in my email from 2015. an interesting comment about liberalism always having to keep moving, from matt walsh:
Liberalism has run out of battle grounds. It’s run out of things to say. But because it is, at its core, a deception, it cannot remain still. It must “progress,” in the sense that it must always run left, even when it appears to have run out of room.
Compare this with Christianity. Traditional Christians have been making the same points, taking the same stands, saying the same things, teaching the same moral lessons, and fighting for the same values and the same truths for 2,000 years. Christianity is immovable because it is eternal. Christianity does not invent new causes, because its one and only cause has always been truth, and truth never changes. While the liberalism of today sounds significantly different from the liberalism of six years ago, the Christianity of today sounds exactly the same as the Christianity of 600 years ago or 1,000 years ago. Christians must defend the truth against new attacks, but the truth itself, that which is being defended, remains steady, present, and alive.
Liberalism has no truth at its foundation, so it can only keep moving. Christians live in a house built on rock, but liberals have no house at all. They are ideological nomads, wandering ever further into the abyss. With ”transgenderism,” there is some evidence that liberalism has wandered a bridge too far. Unlike some of their other ideas, they have absolutely no defense here. Not only does “transgender” propaganda undo many of their own positions, but it makes a proposition that can only be accepted by those already fully indoctrinated into the liberal religion.
