“Maybe Progressives think the Holy Spirit should be fired for such mismanagement.”
I’d go with you, but it’s too right-wing an analogy for your intended audience. Instead, they usually encourage us to think of the Holy Spirit as the theological liberal of the Trinity, a marginalized junior partner who has some really good things to say. Like ordain everything that moves, and free love anyone that wants it for whatever duration, as long as it is committed right now.
Thinking back about that last remark, is there no end to their tendency to remake God in their own image?
Ordain everything that moves – classic!
