PATRIOTS AND POPULISTS: FROM BURKE TO TRUMP by Ian Crowe
If Burke is being used to promote civic nationalism and "national community," maybe it's time to leave Burke to the professional conservatives and start referring to other authorities for the tradition which we wish to pass along.

John Colet, Catholic Humanist (essay by Thomas Banks) https://t.co/HPMgDPteAk— ImaginativeConservat (@imaginativecons) August 29, 2020
Colet’s life and learning represent Catholic humanism at its finest. He advocated for such reforms in education as the soundest minds of his day also desired, and gave real impetus to the study of the Greek language, which was then seen by certain more cautious authorities as too powerful an intoxicant. He knew the value of learning and—unlike more than a few intellectuals—he knew also the limits of its advantages. So much we find in one of his surviving letters to Erasmus, in which he writes, “Of books and learning there is no end; but there is nothing better in this short life than to live purely and holily, to strive daily after perfection and enlightenment, as these books teach us; but that can only be done by a tender love and imitation of Jesus Christ.”
Would it be unfair to criticize the Christian humanists for failing to appreciate Greek theology on its own terms and as a proper inheritance from Hellenism, and instead of focusing too much on the pagan Greeks (and Latins)?

Elegant review by Paul Horwitz of this new book on associational liberty. https://t.co/A2tS2n10Ae— Marc O. DeGirolami (@MarcODeGirolami) August 28, 2020
Law and Liberty
Again, I am not impressed by the arguments of the book -- if one needs to read into the First Amendment a protection of "association" and "community" in order to get the Constitution to be aligned to a liberty or right that is fundamental and which exists prior to the Constitution, then we have a problem, not just with how the Constitution is read but with the system claiming to be based upon it.
From Paul Horwitz's review:
There is no textual federal constitutional right to freedom of association. Like the right to privacy, it is a creature of judicial doctrine—and often an ill-fitting one at that. One major hurdle involves the dualistic architecture that guides the courts. On one side stands the individual, “abstracted from his social context in associations and institutions, the communities of belief and action in which he is actually found.” On the other stands the state: “monolithic in power and reach, absolute in sovereignty.” That does not mean social activities are unprotected. But the measure of their rights largely involves individual claims on one side and asserted state interests on the other. The conceptual space between them remains mostly empty, despite all the meaning-making activity that we know occurs there.At least Sheahan admits this:
To fulfill that function, associations need the freedom to insist on their own central tenets and to form their own rules of inclusion and exclusion (at least as long as there is a right of exit). They should not be forced to follow what political theorist Nancy Rosenblum calls “the logic of congruence,” under which “the internal life and organization of associations [must] mirror liberal democratic principles and practices.”Whether he would admit communities may choose to exclude and include according to "illiberal" principles, I do not know. It is unlikely that he would support communities to exclude not only from their meetings or buildings, but also from their territory. I assume that Sheahan still concedes sovereignty resides in the states, because who has not been indoctrinated to do so? But I don't plan on getting the book. But Horwitz does reveal:
And although much of the book is aimed at undoing the decision in Martinez, Sheahan would draw the line at racially exclusive associations, while allowing student clubs to exclude on the basis of gender or sexual orientation. There are reasonable arguments that race is different and historically unique. But they are hard to sustain. And it is harder still to argue that judges are qualified to say that government has a compelling interest in combating racial discrimination within universities, but not gender or sexual orientation discrimination.
So Sheahan has to maintain respectability or is a true believer in (forced) integration.

The alternative Mommsen offers is just as false as the "false solidarities of today’s identity politics on both the right and the left" he decries (erroneously). His appropriation of John Paul II's Sollicitudo rei socialis is also incorrect. Mommsen's version of solidarity is no threat to the state and is just more ineffectual utopian liberalism disguised as "Christianity." That all are called to be children of God is insufficient by itself to erase all legitimate ethnic and cultural differences that exist, and those differences are only strengthened through identity politics and cannot be eliminated even by violence. Supernatural solidarity in Christ does not require or even logically entail political solidarity and unity under one political authority. Mommsen's proposal, in so far as he takes his political claims as an extension of Christianity as a moral necessity, is a counterfeit Gospel.

The Orthodox Church suspends any discrimination between the sexes by considering men and women as equal members of a Body, endowed with the same spiritual gifts and with a common goal of Communion with God#orthodox_timeshttps://t.co/uNAVqFVEha— Orthodox Times (@orthodox_times) August 26, 2020
This paragraph could have been worded better:
The Orthodox Church elevates woman as a person by giving her a vital role in the development of young people and their presence in society. Contrary to timeless perceptions and realities, which want women to be marginalized, the Church suspends any discrimination between the sexes by considering men and women as equal members of a Body, endowed with the same spiritual gifts and with a common goal of Communion with God.
Discrimination needs to be defined, as well as justice. The prohibition against women being ordained to the presbyterate is a "just" one, and not discrimination according to the most popular meaning of "the unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people or things, especially on the grounds of race, age, or sex."
The uniqueness of the woman and the functions she performs in the Church make her undoubtedly a member equal to the man. In Orthodoxy, respect for individuality is a fundamental principle. Thus, the concept of equality is not used within Orthodoxy, whether the concept of equality between the two sexes, between persons is being supported. The fact that women are excluded from the sacrament of the priesthood, means in no way a devaluation of the Woman, as some want to see it. Priesthood is not an ecclesiastical profession, nor is it of a formal or customary nature. It is a Mystery instituted by Jesus Christ himself, given by Him only to the Apostles and to the successors of their work, the Men-Clergy. Why this possibility was given only to males is interpreted humanely as due to purely practical and biological reasons. Man, after all, is called with faith – trust in Him to accept and live the divine truths and actions. This fact, however, does not detract from the value of the woman as a person. After all, the possibility of sainthood exists freely and equally in both sexes. Let us not forget the following: The body has many parts and each part has its own mission, which with its value and uniqueness contributes to the overall harmony.
Purely practical and biological reasons? Why should mere biology matter, unless differences in "biology" are tied to other differences between men and women?

Canon Law and Political Discourse: What the Church Can and Must Offer Politics https://t.co/uG26AcDVAX— Ius & Iustitium (@iusetiustitium) August 24, 2020
If Canon 747 §1 and §2 apply to the Church as a whole, and not just to the bishops, then the canon taken by itself does not imply any sort of Latin integralist theory regarding the authority of the bishops (or the pope) in relation to the political community. As it stands the canon does not tell us what qualifications are needed to "announce moral principles, even about the social order, and to render judgment concerning any human affairs insofar as the fundamental rights of the human person or the salvation of souls requires it." Not all Latins are experts in moral theology, and this is true of Latin bishops as well. And a knowledge of the basic laws or commandments of God does not guarantee that one can reason well from them to derive secondary, positive human legislation or even policy positions.
