We welcome everyone willing to welcome anyone.*
(*The rest of you are welcome
to become Baptists or Missouri Synod Lutherans!
Okay, so you won't find this part on any marquee. I just thought it was funny and most liberals were already thinking this way anyway...)
The rest are not welcome. Period. Don't bother. Unless you have open borders, the borders are closed to you. Unless you withhold judgment from everyone, anyone here is free to judge you. So, unless you are agreeable to dropping all objective truth, our subjective truth is that you don't belong.
There was a day when old style liberals believed in the strength of their ideas. They were willing to argue with those with whom they disagreed. They sought engagement with those who held to other truths. They were confident enough in their reasoning to believe that no reasonable person would not agree with them, if only they had a chance to talk with them. No more, apparently. Liberalism has grown so weak it must be protected, so fragile that it cannot stand engagement with those who disagree, and so shallow that it has no arguments strong enough to withstand the public debate. And to think, they say conservatives are narrow minded, weak, and fearful! In my mind the surest sign of a weak position is the fear to debate with someone who disagrees and the desire to prevent those who disagree from having a chance at the microphone.
