Buchanan Brigade: Patrick J. Buchanan- ‘US and Catholicism in Crisis’: Bye Bye and Good Riddance to 1950s America

I’m not religious at all as an Agnostic. I don’t promote religion like a believer would, or put it down like a militant Atheist would. I’m completely neutral on the subject other than I believe in Freedom of Religion as well as Separation of Church and State. So asking me what is the state of Catholicism in America would be like asking the average mechanic what is the state of cancer research and expecting an expert opinion from that person on that subject. But I’m familiar with the 1950s even though I was born twenty-years later give or take and of course I’m familiar with today’s Modern America since I live in it.

Countries tend to progress and change. What might of seemed wrong or immoral to one generation of Americans back in the day may not seem wrong to people 20-40 years later lets say. Especially when you’re talking about activities that don’t actually involve hurting innocent people. Like what people watch on TV. Consensual sex between adults even if they are from the same gender. Romantic couples deciding to live with each other and not getting married and perhaps even having kids. Women not just working, but having good responsible jobs where they even have men working under them. Gays living openly and no longer feeling the need hide their sexuality. And gay men not feeling the need to be viewed as masculine and gay women not feeling they should be feminine.

So of course the America that Pope Francis is going to see this week will looking nothing like the America of the 1950s. But unless you’re a Anglo-Saxon Protestant Caucasian man especially of wealth, why would you want to go back to the 1950s and have worry about be discriminated against simply because of your race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexuality, where you were born even. America might have been a utopia for the Christian-Right especially the Anglo-Saxon Southern Protestants. But not a very good place for just about everyone else. America has progressed a lot in the last sixty-years as most developed countries have. And progress is something that most people tend to be fans of anyway.
