The True Rebels of This Age

Christian Ethicist Peter Kreeft has a nice little nugget toward the end of his book Back to Virtue:

Moral traditionalists, who believe in the wisdom of the past, seem to their opponents like drab, dour doomers and damners. But they are not. They are rebels, for in an age of relativism, orthodoxy is the only possible rebellion left; and they sing as they fight. They have hope even as they pronounce judgment on our civilization. All the prophets offer hope. The patient is not dead yet.

    Paul, I’m glad to see that you’ve been enjoying Peter Kreeft. I have also been reading/listening to him for a couple of years now. I got hooked after listening to a few of the audio downloads on his website. He is well worth the read/listen.
