I admit I often struggle when I try to reconcile my political views with my faith. On the one hand, my political views reflect the way I believe things should work. But when I look at it as a follower of Christ that pesky fifth chapter of Matthew tends to get in the way.
Jack Kemp, who passed away last year, always seemed to get it.
Republicans many times can’t get the words ‘equality of opportunity’ out of their mouths. Their lips do not form that way.
For a brief period in 1993-1994, I had the privilege to work for Jack Kemp. At the time he was considering a run for the White House. I would have loved that campaign.
But because of the legacy of Jack Kemp and because of the struggle I have to reconcile my faith and political views, I am intrigued by Restoring Social Justice.
I think the liberal Christian left has given “Social Justice” a bad name. A name (and reputation) it does not deserve.
I like instead this message:
RestoringSocialJustice.com highlights sound policy and people-drive initiatives that are changing society by transforming individual lives. The principles at work extend across borders, and this site’s ideas and research are drawn from several countries. Together, we seek a more effective approach that will restore individuals, families, communities, and our societies at large to full flourishing.
I look forward to reading more.
