There is a lot of talk today that the current administration is populist. Is it true or, like many other stories carried by today’s media, just another lie? Populism is a form of collectivism, similar to socialism and communism. It focuses on;

Early charity in America was based on the idea of the deserving and undeserving poor. These have their basis in the Bible. We are to provide for those in need (Matt. 5 & 6). We are to take care of those first within our family (1 Tim.), and those who are capable of taking care of themselves are to do so to the extent they can (2 Thes.). Charity is a matter of helping another create their own independence. Not an independence in respect to autonomy from God, but instead a greater ability to each fulfill our purpose - that of being transformed toward good by our actions and the virtue we develop.

During the week before the July 4th holiday, we vacationed in the Carolinas. We were reminded of the many sacrifices made by those serving in our armed forces. Fort Moultrie in Charlestown was one example. It was the site of one of the earliest colonial victories against the British in our war for independence, and was in service through the end of WW II. We thank those who are, and have been, in the armed services for your service and sacrifice.

Things took a turn for the worse last Tuesday (June 13) with the deliberate shooting of people practicing for a Congressional ballgame in Northern Virginia. Like it or not, we are in a civil war - one of contradictory and incompatible ideas. Up to last Tuesday it had just not been a shooting war, but there is no doubt the first shot was fired last Tuesday. I pray that it will be the last and only incident. Hatred and division has been stoked by eight years of the Obama administration and continued by those supporting his party’s ideas. We have not been this divided since before the war between the states.

This article’s topic would be laughable, if it did not pose such a serious threat to our freedom. Liberals have been heavily stoking their base with hate, and claiming that those who oppose them are fascists. Is that accusation true? This article looks at the facts and where those take us.

We recently examined one false argument advanced by liberals in regards to refugee resettlement. Their position was put forward through several religious organizations and voiced a deceptive corruption of basic church teachings. Their argument focused simply on man’s nature alone and not on the ideas one holds. Both matter as both define who we are. Otherwise religious tenets, or principles of any kind, simply would not matter. A world without principles leads to anarchy.

Given all of the discussion today about our ‘rights’ to things such as healthcare, education, a job, etc., I think it is appropriate we look at exactly what our role is in creation. What we own, what we owe, and what we are responsible for. We seem to have forgotten much, even within many of our churches.

Recently the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and an evangelical group issued statements opposing the President’s immigration moratorium from seven predominantly Islamic countries where the rule of law has broken down. They rightly point to the love of neighbor and need to support religious liberty for all, but their positions are not intellectually honest as they do not present all the relevant issues.

As we witnessed the peaceful transition of power on January, 20th, despite the rancor occurring during the election itself, it seems fitting to think a bit about Obama’s legacy. There have been certainly been many analysts and talking heads who have expressed their views, but are their views grounded in truth? Without that, their words are as empty as the wind, and of little value.

The last article questioned if principles matter any longer within our country? Well, the election is over. We have some results that indicate whether we even understand what principles are any longer. No, I am not talking about the Presidential election, those of the Senate or House, the governorships, or even the state legislatures.  Virginia had two constitutional ballot initiatives this election. The first proposed an amendment supporting Virginia’s right to work law.  Its purpose was to make it more difficult for a governor or other elected official from undermining present law. The second provided localities the option of creating property tax exemptions for the surviving spouse of certain emergency services providers who die in the line of duty.
