Impossible standards of ideological purity

Someone recently criticized me for having listened to the music of Hildegard of Bingen, given her stance on homosexuality. How ideologically pure do we have to be? Do we have to drink milk only from lesbian cows? Besides, would it be such a sin unto death to give a 12th-century nun the same amount of slack we so freely give to modern Democratic politicians?
