Actually, it wasn't an attempt to be progressive, it was an attempt to retranslate what they messed up in the 60's because the words simply did not MEAN what they said....I wish I had a copy, I could give you an example, there are some real theological doozies. I always knew this and wondered, why we didn't have a better creed and better translation, I didn't know it was only the American Bishops in the 60's who decided to be very wishy--washy about the translation. So I'm glad, there can be NO mistake about what we mean. And since part of it is the creed. It ought to be VERY tightly woven.
Amazing isn't it. Americans were founded on an attitude of individual independence which is one foundational reason so many are feeling isolated in our current culture which does not build or nurture community on it's own unless it is around something like a movie release... or some popularbook/movie.... The old translation was actually already fine the way it was before they changed it back then.
