progressives vs. conservatives

Time Saving Truth from Falsehood and EnvyImage via WikipediaI'm listening to Krista Tippett's interview with Rod Dreher;

Dreher says:

Religious progressives find the search and find seeking to be so important. Religious conservatives put their emphasis on the finding.

I don't know if progressives really see things that way or not, but religious conservatives definitely value affirmation of accepted truth and have little interest in struggle, pilgrimage, or whatever. Maybe that's why so few religious conservatives publish their journals.
