The Libertarian Christian Podcast

Ep 312: How Should Libertarian Christians Regard the American Revolution? The Libertarian Christian Podcast

How do we as Christians and libertarians view the era of the American Revolution? Mike Maharrey of the 10th Amendment Center and the Godarchy podcast, and our own Matthew Bellis discuss their patriotic upbringing and how they square their heartfelt love for American principles, but disdain for the war, slavery, colonialism, etc. Can we properly judge Americans of the past with a 21st conception of morality? These questions (and more) are discussed by Mike, Matthew, and Doug with the hope of offering some clarity to how we as libertarians and Christians think about the American Revolution.   Main Points of Discussion: 00:00 Introduction 02:55 How do you understand and process the American Revolution? (The distinction between the Revolution and the Revolutionary War). 08:40 Matthew Bellis on the above question: challenging slavery and the root of liberty from the Reformation 13:16 Was it a defensive war or war of aggression against the crown? 19:15 Where and how is proper authority vested? The office, Romans 13, the Constitution? 22:55 What would you do if your family was threatened in such a way that violence was unavoidable? 25:10 How many colonists favored the Revolutionary War? 28:22 Should Christians break fellowship over decisions to join the military/war? 31:48 How would you persuade someone like Thomas Paine based on what you know now? 37:48 Closing thoughts   Additional Resources: – Wendy McElroy on Just War and American Independence – Christian Theology of Public Policy: Highlighting the American Experience – "Were the American Revolutionaries Wrong to Revolt?" – Episode 256: America's Revolutionary Mind Audio Production by Podsworth Media – https://podsworth.com

Rebutting The Case for Public Schools: Part 2 of Public Schools in America Fundamental Opposites

Episode air date: January 31st 2023   Part two of a three part series on public education where we will look into the history of public schooling as well as arguments for and against it. Today we look at a case made in favor of public schooling and how to address the issues it faces from The Atlantic, Americans Have Given Up on Public Schools. We get about halfway through the article as we attack point by point the framing and arguments made in favor of the public education system. The article is persuasive if you don't know what to look for so let us break down the manipulations commonly seen in think pieces.    We are not sponsored by anyone.
