@54 Do you think that hospitals run by Catholics shouldn't be patronized by people that disagree with the Catholic church?
commented on McGinn vs Murray: A Classic Battle Between a Progressive and a Liberal
There is no ideological difference between American Liberals and Progressives, the latter is just branding that came about because Liberal was very effectively turned into a dirty word and the majority of Democrats are not actually Liberal.
Conflating Liberalism with mainstream Democratic party thought (economically moderate, just barely leaning towards social liberalism, "Internationalism") and then reasoning from that misses that the left hasn't been running the Democratic party for decades. The Democrats didn't abandon Progressivism, they abandoned Liberalism.

I'm skeptical that this describes all children today, anymore than a suggestion that all children in the 1970s had phone sex.
