Compare and contrast...

...Progressive Christianity:

//Under the People of God model, the Church, apart from faith in Jesus, is essentially nothing at all. Dogmas, creeds, and doctrines, together with structures, hierarchies, and authorities, are merely ways by which the faithful articulate and organize their beliefs—constructs employed to express how the faith has been integrated into various moments of history. The foregoing is an example of “process theology.”

The People of God model is generally favored by Catholics who consider themselves liberal or progressive and is rejected by those who consider themselves orthodox , traditionalist, or conservative.//

with Fascism:

//If relativism signifies contempt for fixed categories and those who claim to be the bearers of objective immortal truth, then there is nothing more relativistic than Fascist attitudes and activity. From the fact that all ideologies are of equal value, we Fascists conclude that we have the right to create our own ideology and to enforce it with all the energy of which we are capable.//

So, go construct those beliefs appropriate for this "moment of time."

You are in the best of company!
