The liberals in our faith could care less about orthodoxy and the radical conservatives seem bent on a course to return the Church to a time and place that exists only in memory. Both refuse to speak to people as they are now with the timeless truth of Catholicism. The radicals on both sides seek to either strip the Church of truth or dress it in a garment of irrelevance. All the while, the people leave.
