As a former intern to a person who had regular access to Chuck Colson, I read Doug Bandow’s piece on Colson and his condemnation of Circuit City’s lay-off of 3,400 persons with interest. For what it’s worth, I tend to think Bandow is right in this case and Colson may well be wrong.
However, after making a rather specific case against Colson’s broadside, Bandow ends with this whopper of an assertion:
There’s no Christian politics, whether right or left. Nor is there any Christian economics, whether capitalist or socialist. People should be moral because they are human beings, not because they are businessmen.
You can’t just drop a statement like that out of the sky. I invite Mr. Bandow to develop his point further so that I may respond more fully. I may be reached at hunterbaker-at-gmail-dot-com.
