Fr. Johnson (& Acton) Avoid the Issue

Earlier today we pointed out that a certain political candidate and a certain teevee host both carefully avoided a rather important question.

Well, it happens in other venues, too.  A priest affiliated with Acton managed to avoid addressing the important issue raised by Ahmari.  No surprise:  Acton is the "religious" wing of the Libertarian Party. 

It's easy to set up straw men, as did this priest.  It's not so easy to get around St JPII's axiom that "Liberty is the freedom to do what is right."  So he avoided that little problem.

Especially since that definition of liberty has been around for a very, very, long time, per Deneen.

I'm not going to canonize Ahmari.  But identifying his arguments with that of Sanders takes a very stretchy imagination, indeed.
