God, Politics, Economics, Family & Living the Faith 8.9.19

  • Fr. Ben Johnson: Is Pete Buttigieg right that opposing a $15 minimum wage ‘taunts’ God?; at least four reasons raising the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour is likely to have harmful effects.
  • Catholic teaching and throughout Christianity we care for the poor; ways and means by which we do so are prudential. Minimum wage destroys our appreciation for our God given potential.
  • Prof. Michael Pakaluk: The ecology and economics of the family, the first society; keeping the Lord’s Day holy, what should set this day apart from other days.
  • Sunday/the Lord’s Day: meant to be a mini Easter.
