Liberty rests on spirituality

Nov. 24 at 10:41pm

In a sobering article over at Crisis, Fr. Rutler reminds us of Alexander Solzhenitzyn's prophetic address to the Harvard class of 1978: 

...we have lost the concept of a Supreme Complete Entity which used to restrain our passions and our irresponsibility. We have placed too much hope in political and social reforms, only to find out that we were being deprived of our most precious possession: our spiritual life.

How can we expect to retain our right to religious liberty if we've rejected the notion of being "under God"?

Interesting.

I think Dr. Mirus is arguing something similar to what Solzhenitzyn was, though in his own way:
