Prof. Robert George is a vast improvement on James Carville.
(Page 2 of 2)
I was recently a vice chairman of the dinner when George was honored by the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty for his work promoting this fundamental right. He received the fund’s Canterbury Medal, joining a prestigious group of defenders of religious freedom, including Elie Wiesel, Chuck Colson, and Archbishop Chaput. In a tribute to George and recognition of the importance of religious liberty, the Four Seasons stately dining room where the award was presented was filled to capacity with religious, intellectual, and political leaders.
The Becket Fund and Family Research Council, on whose boards George sits, are dedicated to defending religious liberty. For more than a decade, the Becket Fund has pursued freedom of faithful expression in all its forms — from defense of the words “one nation under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance to defense of the conscientious objections of faithful pharmacists to pursuit of international religious freedom. The Becket Fund and FRC are taking Washington ‘s assault on religious liberty head on.
And Washington better start listening. As George recently said: “The moral foundations of economic conservatism are precisely those of social conservatism, namely, respect for the human person, which grounds our commitment to individual liberty and the right to economic freedom and other essential civil liberties….”
The mainstream media and the political elites may not have made the connection yet, but freedom is at the heart of this grassroots insurrection. And they are ignoring this at their own peril.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
