A commentor remarks:

The short answer for a solution is for Catholics to stop referring to themselves as this or that kind of Catholic.

Well, I don't think that's the problem. I think the problem is Catholics referring to other Catholics with qualifiers. Further, when some of us do use qualifiers in reference to ourselves, we do so in order precisely to distinguish ourselves from others....those we deem less than "orthodox" or less than "progressive."
