The Huffington Post demonstrates the dilemma of compromise

Until we conform to liberalism, there will be no tolerance of non-liberal beliefs.  Note in the article that the author deftly uses the term 'culture wars' to subtly include the Church's traditional stance on homosexuality.  It doesn't give details or examples of this culture war language the Church has used.  It merely presents the Church's approach, that Pope Francis is changing, as part of those vaguely applied 'culture wars.'

That's the problem with shrinking from being part of the culture wars.  Those who are fighting against the Faith are still fighting them, and using the term at their convenience.  FWIW, after over 10 years of attending Catholic services, I have yet to hear the topic of homosexuality addressed.  A few years ago, our priest begrudgingly, following a request by the Bishop, mentioned that marriage is between a man and a woman.  But that's been it.  The H-Bomb has not been dropped in a single homily I've heard, and I have attended many different parishes over the years.

Again, you can't compromise with a movement that seeks nothing less than conquest.
