David Lane on Can America Ever Be Separated From Its Christian Heritage?

Hell-bent on “canceling” Attorney General William Barr, Katherine Stewart and Caroline Fredrickson cobble together a New York Times opinion piece under the headline “Bill Barr Thinks America Is Going to Hell.” “Mr. Barr’s infamous speech,” they held, “at the University of Notre Dame Law School, in which he blamed ‘secularists’ for ‘moral chaos’ and ‘immense suffering, wreckage and misery’, it has become clear that no understanding of William Barr can be complete without taking into account his views on the role of religion in society.”

Stewart’s and Fredrickson’s scornful reproval of Barr resulted from the attorney general’s suggestion how to rectify pagan secularism’s threatening of sustainable freedom in America. “Threatening” as in dispelling virtue as the key component of freedom as made widely known by the Founding Fathers.

“This form of ‘religious liberty’ is not a mere side issue for Mr. Barr,” they maintained, “or for the other religious nationalists who have come to dominate the Republican Party. Barr has made this clear. All the problems of modernity—’the wreckage of the family’, ‘record levels of depression and mental illness’, ‘drug addiction’ and ‘senseless violence’ —stem from the loss of a strict interpretation of the Christian religion.”

Regarding Stewart’s and Fredrickson’s own view on the role of religion in society, we don’t have to look far to find out what that entails. Fredrickson is the past legal counsel of NARAL Pro-Choice America. It will be easily understood that she thought up her own special religious morality, based on human nature, human experience and private rules of conduct.

As Stewart and Fredrickson “minister” and attempt to recruit and ‘”convert” unbelievers to their self-styled religion, the hard-left New York Times felt called upon to underwrite their “missionary” work with in-kind giving, believing in a kingdom principle: It brings more blessing to the giver than to the recipient …

Stewart and Fredrickson, strangely enough, seem to feel threatened by Barr, who is simply calling for a return to the Judeo-Christian heritage and culture established by the Founding Fathers in 17th- and 18th-century America.

America being a democratic republic, Stewart and Fredrickson, of course, have every right to air their opinions, to muster and marshal like-minded troops to polling booths and be ever-present on radio and television news shows in their endeavor to establish a libertine system of beliefs.
