Christianity and Social Justice, a False Comparison

Sharing from the blogger Conservative Hideout 2.0, Matt:

Christianity and Social Justice, a False Comparison

I was thinking of doing a post about this very topic, because it really bothers me leftists are abusing people’s sense of charity by tying it to their Marxist agenda.  Charity comes from the heart and not from the barrel of a gun.

    Christianity and social justice..the church needs all the help it can get…even from the government ..

  3. Beth says:

    Your link BB says that "The National Opportunity and Community Renewal Act puts a focus on market driven solutions" so they realize that the market, not the government is the ultimate solution.

    IMO the modern Catholic Church is very left-wing despite taking socially conservative positions on the life issues. Where I draw the line is when priests and bishops act like their positions on say illegal immigration and health care is part of church dogma and you're somehow a bad and uncharitable Catholic if you think otherwise.

  5. Beth says:

    I agree, Z-man, the church shouldn't muddy the waters. If, as BB says, charity is not enough, then why isn't it? I think it's because people who really aren't in need think they should be, and so the system gets overloaded and those who truly are in need get lost in the shuffle.

    "Social Justice" (which simply means "I have a moral right to steal from you") is a mockery of Christian Charity, as Socialism is a mockery of Justice.
