Inquisition and Modern liberalism; mirror images of one another

Why, you say?

Simple. In the Inquisition, the perpetrators quite rightly hated heresies, but went overboard and also hated the heretics.

Whereas modern liberals, not wanting to be labeled Torquemadas, simply LOVE heretics. Which would be fine, except that they then also go overboard -the other way- and start loving the heresies, thinking that you can't love one without also loving the other.

Same errors, simply mirror images of one another.

Hat tip to Peter Kreeft and Ronald Tacelli.
