FLG thinks Anti-Climacus misses something here.
Yes, modern day liberalism is inherently political and is much removed from its Protestant origins. Nevertheless, one should not overlook the strain of individualism that runs from those original Protestant liberals to today's more politically-based liberals.
Protestant churches are, for all intents and purposes, the individuals within the congregation within that local community. This goes back to Luther, and stands in stark contrast to the Roman Catholic Church as an eternal organization to which one belongs, but in important and fundamental ways stands beyond and above any of its members.
FLG thinks a misunderstanding of this relationship is why the Obama Administration got caught seemingly blindsided by the overwhelming negative reaction of even pro-choice, Democratic Catholics. Moreover, it's why FLG, who is not Catholic, finds many of the arguments based upon what percentage of Catholics use contraception, etc or arguing that the HHS mandate doesn't inhibit any particular Catholic individual from practicing their religion are incredibly offbase.
The Church, as an organization and institution separate from any group of Catholics even if they are a part of it, undertakes certain good works (education, health care, etc) as part of its religious obligation on behalf of its members, and if you pressed the logic all of mankind. It doesn't matter how many of its members use contraception or approve of its stance on abortion. The Church itself acts. Much in the same way that a corporation is a person that exists outside the individuals that own and work for it. Unlike a corporation, however, the Church endeavors to take up important good works instead of turning a profit. Thus, FLG is steadfastly in the grant a broad religious exemption and tell people that if they want to have contraception covered in their health care insurance plan, then don't work for the Catholic Church.
Anyway, modern liberalism, which is individualistic, a quality it inherited from its Protestant origins, does, FLG thinks, present a unique problem for the Catholic Church.
