The Five Stages of Liberal Moral Decay

So we have gendercide, the advocacy of infanticide and the advocacy of bestiality (though thankfully some criminal charges to go with the practice of zoophilia by the writer of the article - BC is not finished, just yet).

As Dr Edward Feser points out there are a number of stages to this madness:

To the charge that liberals are (or, given their principles, should be) in favor of X [where X = legalizing abortion, liberalizing obscenity laws, banning smoking on private property, legalizing “same-sex marriage,” outlawing the public advocacy of traditional sexual morality, etc. etc.], the standard liberal response goes through about five stages (with, it seems, roughly 5-10 years passing between each stage, though sometimes the transition is much quicker than that). Here they are:

Stage 1: “Oh please. Only a far-right-wing nutjob would make such a paranoid and ridiculous accusation - I suppose next you’ll accuse us of wanting to poison your precious bodily fluids!”

Stage 2: “Well, I wouldn’t go as far as X. All the same, it’s good to be open-minded about these things. I mean, people used to think ending slavery was a crazy idea too…”

Stage 3: “Hey, the Europeans have had X for years and the sky hasn’t fallen. But no, I admit that this backward country probably isn’t ready for X yet.”

Stage 4: “Of course I’m in favor of X - it’s in the Constitution! Only a far-right-wing nutjob could possibly oppose it.”

Stage 5: “You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can be used against you in a court of law…”

Bear this in mind next time someone calls you a deluded hardcore Catholic/ closed-minded bigot/ medieval dinosaur /Sky-pixie-spaghetti-monster-believing dupe/ enemy of progress [delete as appropriate] for not swallowing their latest 'modest proposal'.
