Onward Christian Soldiers - Lawyers, Guns & Money Katherine Stewart has an op-ed this morning reminding us that people like Josh Hawley are opposed in principle to liberal democracy, and that we know this because they tell us this themselves, constantly and unambiguously ... Mr. Hawley denounced Pelagius for teaching that human beings have the freedom to choose how they live their lives and that grace comes to those who do good things, as opposed to those who believe the right doctrines ... In other words, Mr.Hawley' s idea of freedom is the freedom to conform to what he and his preferred religious authorities know to be right -- certain variants of Christianity that are very widespread in America today, specifically fundamentalist evangelical Protestantism and reactionary integralist Catholicism, are just as radically incompatible with liberal democracy as are the variants of Islam that today are the state religions in countries like Iran and Saudi Arabia ... 20th century fascism had one of its deepest roots in the reactionary Catholic backlash to the French Revolution: (born again Trumpsters)

I highly recommend this long but fascinating essay by Isaiah Berlin about how the roots of 20th-century fascism can be found in certain strains of reactionary Catholic thought:

How the way you think was shaped centuries ago - BBC Future ... Despite their seeming self-obsession, Weird people tend to stick to impartial rules and can be quite trusting, fair and cooperative toward strangers. Emotionally, Weird (Western, Educated, Industrialised, Rich and Democratic) people are relatively shameless, less constrained by the eyes of others, but often wracked by guilt as they fail to live up to their own self-imposed standards ... While the diversity of kin-based institutions found around the world has been influenced by many factors, the European Marriage Pattern traces primarily to a religious mutation. Beginning in late antiquity, the branch of Christianity that evolved into the Roman Catholic Church began to gradually promulgate a set of prohibitions and prescriptions related to marriage and the family. The Church, for example, banned cousin marriage, arranged marriage and polygamous marriage. Unlike other Christian sects, the Church slowly expanded the circle of "incestuous" relationships out to sixth cousins by the 11th Century ... Analyses show that Europeans from regions that spent more centuries under the influence of the Church are today less inclined to conform, more individualistic and show greater trust and fairness towards strangers.
