Christianity and liberalism

Good thoughts, but I would go even further and point out that conservative Christianity has lost any battle that it had with liberalism – not only is Christianity not a bulwark, it's also a proven loser:

Christianity, far from being the bulwark of conservatism that its proponents assert that it is, seems to be uniquely susceptible among religions to liberalism. Liberalism/leftism is Christianity secularized: the commands to love one's neighbor regardless of one's neighbor's merits or demerits; the Protestant "priesthood of all believers"; the Puritan strain in American culture: these are some of the strands of Christian thought that readily lend themselves to modern liberalism, which then takes them to an extreme – we are all neighbors now, we must give charity to anyone who wants it. "And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also."
