Too many progressives are nihilists. Ceasing to believe in anything they lack objective standards for making value judgements. In place of objective standards they use feelings and platitudes as guides for morality. Without objective standards, they can deny the existence of sin and thus placate their conscience. It also makes them incapable of even simple value judgements. So, pornography is increasingly welcomed on college campuses, crowding out Shakespeare. Their tolerance, however, is not extended to anyone with an objective standard, and especially not to a Christian. Objective standards highlight the foolishness of progressives and deny them the luxury of wallowing guilt free in their own selfish, egotistical ways.
