"Catholic Sources and the Declaration of Independence"

Next time a secularist, a pro-abort or a Democrat politician or voter tells you that "Religion has no place in politics and government," or a bigoted Protestant tells you that "Catholicism is un-American," tell them they are w-r-o-n-g. Then refer them to "Catholic Sources and the Declaration of Independence" (click on this post's title), a scholarly paper that Father John Rager wrote in 1928 to show parallels between the Declaration of Independence and St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Robert Bellarmine and many other Catholic thinkers.

Tell them that these parallels between Catholic thinkers' and Founding Fathers' thoughts on liberty are why Bellarmine-Jefferson High School ("Bell-Jeff") in our Archdiocese got its name.

Happy Independence Day!

Quintero,

Unfortunately it is not always Protestants who take that position, but some well know Catholic writers as well!

Great News!

We once again have the petition in support of Fr. Robert Altier up and running again.

Please help us to regain the momentum we had before we had to change Servers, pass the word on and go to: crcoa.com
