Stuff to consider from our post-libertarian monarchist theologian-in-residence over at Gottesdienst:
I, for one, think the Church’s public advocacy should stick to Thus Says the Lord. The US Conference of Catholic Bishops have vastly diminished their voice by pronouncing on every topic under the sun from immigration policy to welfare spending. When they finally had a real religious issue (the HHS mandate for them to break their consciences by buying birth control for folks), I wonder how many folks just shrugged and said it was the Catholics being political again? I don’t want to see Lutherans going down the same road.
This stuff ports well, right? As in, there’s no reason a thoroughgoing Christian monarchist wouldn’t also think along such lines, is there?
