Quote of the Day
Apropos of the “Fortnight for Freedom,” from “Freedom is Not the Good,” a post by Jerry Salyer at Front Porch Republic.
“… for generations the American Catholic leadership has mostly assumed that an Enlightenment Deist’s conception of liberty is perfectly commensurate with its own. Some would even say the leadership has adopted the Enlightenment Deist’s conception of liberty. Either way, for more than two centuries the Catholic has obediently danced to the American system’s tune, without ever seriously questioning that system’s basic vision and principles — much less seeking to revise or correct them via light from the Church Fathers and Doctors. So who is to blame when he discovers that, left to itself, the system’s definition of liberty has devolved into something hostile?”
