Patrick Deneen citing a Dreher post on TAC about the insatiability of liberals to press against all our moral traditions.  Dreher writes this same post over and over while bending over for each and every liberal victory.  It's a living I suppose.

In any event, I snarked Dreher in passing and the great soul of reposted.  See bottom of comments.  I wonder if this exchange will be there in the morning.  Good fun.  BTW, I respect Deneen as a  champion of Roman Catholic values and faith.

  • Thomas Meehan Running away to the backwoods while writing click bait for your fan club of deviates and pseudo-religious goo goos doesn't impress. It's your living, but it doesn't impress.
