What is a “Progressive Catholic?” Is it the new buzz term for “liberal?” “Dissident?” “Heretic?” It’s not a term I have encountered on message boards but it seems to be widely understood in St. Blog’s. Progressing towards what exactly?

Whatever the adjective, the modus operendi seems to be the same. First you have a large post or two about what this person really believes. They have to re-define themselves and rationalize all of their beliefs so that those they correspond with know what page they’re on.

Well that doesn’t sound like progress to me! The Catholic Church already did that and came out with a lovely concise “sure norm” that I can depend on to explain exactly what I, as a practicing Catholic, believe – it’s called the Catechism of the Catholic Church! It’s not progress to have to go back and redefine everything that 2000+ years, all of the popes and councils have already defined.
