First Apostle

This is a very insightful post. I have been saying simiilar things for some time. Liberalism in the church is something entirely different from the vision imagined by Spong and others. Namely, those of us who don't have a problem with the ordination of gay people, etc... actually believe in Jesus! Unfortunately, as you say, the "orthodox" like to imagine that their opponents are as they thought they were in the past.

This misconception by the "orthodox" really hit me when my wife and I were in San Francisco last January. We went to mass at Grace Cathedral, and while I was really looking forward to the music, I thought the liturgy would be odd and the preaching to be too liberal for me. It wasn't anything like that. There were great people everywhere and the dean's sermon was terrific and totally sound. The liturgy was razor sharp and not at all wacky. It just seemed to me that some people must think they sacrifice babies or sit around a statue of Buddha in there. Not even close.
