Liberals Invert Religious Good

For liberals, the key to religion is to simply interpret it so that it appears to reinforce liberal ideals. Eventually, most liberals realize this doesn't work as well as simply discarding religion altogether and mocking it instead.

Many secular Conservatives reject Christianity because they believe it is what liberals claim it to be. In reality, liberal Christianity is the opposite of the good and purposefully inverts traditional values.

"The New testament... gives us a pretty clear hint of what a fully Christian society would be like. Perhaps it gives us more than we can take. It tells us that there are to be no passengers or parasites: if man does not work, he ought not to eat. Everyone one is to work with his own hands, and what is more, every one's work is to produce something good: there will be no manufacture of silly luxuries and then of sillier advertisements to persuade us to buy them."
C.S. Lewis, "Mere Christianity," p. 84
Who do we find most opposed to conservative values? Liberal politicians, bankers, lawyers, and the large underclass of citizens dependent on government entitlements/handouts. That is, the same people who make their living as "passengers and parasites." They oppose conservative and religious values because those values are directly opposed to the destructive ways they earn a living. Those at the top skim a far better living via their parasitic behavior than they could through contributing. When public opinion begins to become aroused against their parasitic and destructive behavior, those who benefit the most make sure to redirect it towards anger and envy of "rich businessmen" - the class of wealthy who did not necessarily earn their living via parasitic behavior, but may have actually provided great material help to society.

Liberalism both enables and reinforces parasitic behavior, corrupting and attacking good behavior.  The parasites are very good at serving their self-interest, but are very harmful to a healthy society. Eventually their behavior will destroy society.
