The Progressive Urbanite is just as Self-righteous as the Conservative Hick

From Tim Keller’s “The King’s Cross”:

“The self-discovery person says, ‘Oh, no, the progressive, open-minded people are in and the judgmental bigots are out – and of course we’re the open-minded ones.’ In Western Cosmopolitan culture there’s an enormous amount of self-righteousness about self-righteousness. We progressive urbanites are so much better than people who think they’re better than other people. We disdain those religious, moralistic types who look down on others. Do you see the irony, how the way of self-discovery leads to as much superiority and self-righteousness as religion does?” (King’s Cross 46-47).
