Steve Skojec on the Benedict Option

More on the Benedict Option: Not Perfect, But Better Than Acquiescence by Steve Skojec

What people need to do, before trying to elaborate on the Benedict option (or MacIntyre's formulation of it), is to study politics and the lay vocation -- too much is being missed because people do not know the order of charity or what is required for community, so it is not surprising that people continue to raise objections to the Benedict option based on ambiguities, misunderstandings, or their own erroneous assumptions about the duties of Christians to a non-Christian community (or social arrangement).
